Webinar: Remaining Land-Grant Fierce While Accepting the Land-Grab Truth of Our Foundation

Date: April 20, 3 PM-4:30 PM (ET)

Description:
Land-grant universities (LGUs) have been providing affordable access to a quality higher education experience for over 150 years. However, these same institutions were founded from the sale of lands taken from Tribal Nations, typically through broken treaties or brute force. We will discuss a variety of initiatives being undertaken by LGUs as they grapple with these contrasting circumstances.
