Presentation: Challenges of Recruiting and Educating Native American Students in a Western Context
Start Date: 4/3/2014Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Date: 4/3/2014End Time: 1:00 PM

Event Description:
Presented by Harvey Rude. Brown Bag Session sponsored by the CEBS Diversity and Equity Committee.

The increasing emphasis regarding the complementary aspects and value of Native and Western ways of learning can address many of the significant challenges that currently exist for Native American students. A significant challenge for Western leaning universities, such as the University of Northern Colorado, is to develop proactive recruitment and retention strategies to ensure that talented Native American students have opportunities to attend college and persist through graduation.

The following considerations are offered in the spirit of generative change for culturally responsive education that meets the needs of American Indian children and their families in the transition from secondary to post-secondary education:

  1. There is a compelling need to develop a definition of what constitutes culturally responsive Native American education that promotes harmony between Native and Western culture;
  2. Programming approaches for Native American students must be developed in a manner that meets the cognitive, emotional, social, and physical diversified needs of these learners;
  3. Teacher education programs are encouraged to include the content and processes of individualization to meet the needs of diverse learners, including Native American students, in undergraduate and graduate degree and licensure programs; and
  4. Ongoing professional development for teachers and other staff who educate Native American students must be provided, with special emphasis on learners who are identified as exceptional (including those with disabilities and gifted/talented), under-served, and educationally disadvantaged.
