9.5. Center for American Indians

The Center for American Indians (Center) was established in Fall 2009 as a pilot program located in the Office of the President. The Center will coordinate campus-based cultural programs, and will work in collaboration with the Division of American Indian Studies in research related to the future of American Indian education and collections in higher education.

The Center is expected to attract interest, energy, funding, faculty, staff and students and expanding American Indian Programs. These expectations will then provide for a new creative energy for this primary and historic mission of higher education with American Indians. The Center will also validate the American Indian Voice as the Privileged Voice on Bacone College's Campus. The Center is located at the Kiva.
