Native American Tuition Waiver Talk
As you may know, the University of Minnesota Morris has had a Native American Tuition Waiver since 1909. Previous to becoming a campus an American Indian boarding school was in opperation from 1887 to 1909. In 1909 the school was shut down and taken over by the state of Minnesota under the agreement that Native American students would be admitted free of tuition cost.
There are a lot of misconceptions around campus about the tuition waiver, so it is important to educate our campus about the reasoning behind the tuition waiver.
The Native American Tuition Waver Talk serves as an opportunity for the Indigenous population to provide an individual personalized perspective on not only the history, but also individual personalized perspective on what it means to be indigenous at the University of Minnesota Morris.
The talk will consist of a guided discussion with current/relevant questions followed by a brief description of the historical aspect of why the University of Minnesota Morris provides the opportunity for indigenous peoples to afford further education. There will be representatives from the indigenous community who will serve as panelist in which will speak on behalf of their personal individual experiences in regards to the Native American Tuition Waver. There will be an opportunity for individuals to ask questions in regards to the Native American Tuition Waver during the event. There will also be food served at the event.
CNIA will be providing some light refreshments at this event! Date is tentatively set for Sepetember 19th, we will inform you of any changes, hope to see you there!
