Parfleche Exchange Program
Lead: Arthur Taylor
In recent years the University of Idaho has made significant strides in strengthening relationships with Tribal communities. This has been achieved through the establishment of the Tribal Liaison position, expanding the role of the Native Student Center Director and the programming for students, developing memorandums of understanding with Northwest Tribes and higher-education institutions, and expanding our recruitment, research, and outreach activities. In this proposal, it is suggested we build on that solid foundation by developing mutually beneficial relationships with the Tribes. These relationships can help all of our students learn, inform our scholarship, and provide important outreach and engagement opportunities.
