STUDENT AFFAIRS DRIVE-IN CONFERENCE

 

Understanding Native Epistemologies, Culture, and Social Structures
to Support Native American Higher Education Success

Our student affairs profession necessitates the importance of understanding the student populations that we serve. There has been a significant increase of Native American students attending postsecondary institutions; however, the population continues to remain the lowest in comparison to others. Further, being less than 1% at most public institutions there continues to persist a great lack of knowledge and understanding about how to support Native American students.

The day-long drive in conference welcomes all student affairs practitioners, students in higher education programs, faculty and professional staff, cultural diversity coordinators, tribal education leaders and professionals, and counselors to network with fellow colleagues and gain new insights from experienced Native American researchers, professionals, and practitioners.

A professional development opportunity for participants, the conference presentations will:

  • Highlight Indigenous cultural and social structures which will guide student affairs professionals and institutions in their work.
  • Identify commonalities and differences of Native American college student experiences in higher education.
  • Inform at all levels on the current research and best practices to better understand and serve Native students at colleges and universities.

Book will be available for purchase at the conference: Beyond the asterisk: Understanding Native American college students. Shotton, H. S., Lowe, S. C., & Waterman, S. J. (Eds.) (February 2013). Sterling, VA: Stylus Publications.
