The Indigenous Governance Program at the Native Nations Institute, University of Arizona is pleased to announce that it will begin accepting registrations for the upcoming January in Tucson 2018 intensive educational session.
For three weeks each year, the January in Tucson event provides an opportunity for students, tribal leaders, community members, and interested individuals to come together and learn from top experts in the field of Indigenous governance and Indigenous rights. Participants are able to explore a wide selection of course options ranging from Native Economic Development to Indigenous Peoples’ Rights Under International Law.
But what makes January in Tucson truly unique is the ability of participants to engage in candid conversations with faculty members and with one another about the practical challenges of governance facing their home communities. This space provides opportunities for participants to gain hands-on skills that will equip them to carry on the work of native nation building in their home communities. The result is more than just a series of classes. Participants come away from January in Tucson poised to effect change.
All offerings during the January in Tucson session are designed as stand-alone courses. Individuals may take as few, or as many, courses as they desire.
