About Us

Student Outreach and Support

IPI affirms Native American/Alaskan Native/First Nations youth and students:

  • Quarterly opportunities to interact with Native American/Alaskan Native/First Nations artists, writers, scholars, and elders
  • One-on-one mentorship opportunities with SU alumni, faculty, and staff, as well as community members beyond the campus
  • Relevant and timely programming that addresses strategies for college success

Campus and Community Outreach

IPI collaborates with the Center for Faculty Development to offer workshops for faculty who are interested in enhancing their understanding of Indigenous peoples and in learning more about best practices in working with Native American/Alaskan Native/First Nations students. IPI also collaborates with other members of the SU community to host events that raise awareness about working with or on behalf of Indigenous peoples and communities.
