"Creating spaces of possibility" for our Native Students, Faculty, and Staff

Submitted by Kai Wise on

Just as the year is wrapping up, our friends at CAIIS (the Center for American Indian and Indigenous Studies) received some amazing news. With the initial 3 year $1.8 million Melon Foundation grant ending, the Center just received a renewal. The renewal is for $2.3 million over the next 5 years, ensuring the work and community build by the Center will not just continue, but grow. The University is celebrating with us and published a full story in UW Today, an email that goes out to all UW students, faculty, and staff. 

We want to give special thanks for Professor Jean Dennison and Professor Danica Miller, co-directors of the Center, as well as Professor Chadwick Allen, previous co-director for the Center. Alongside Todd Clark, Kathleen Howard, and Bryce Lewis-Smith, they give their hearts, energy, and time to lifting up our students, faculty, and staff.
