Building a Twenty-first-Century American Indian Studies Program

An eighteen-month faculty and curricular development project to establish a minor in American Indian Studies.

The goal of this project is to engage CSUSM faculty and representatives from California tribal nations in the design of a minimum of four American Indian Studies courses to support the American Indian Studies Department dialogue and to foster continuing collaborative dialogues that bridge cultures while enhancing access and retention efforts on campus. Objective 1: Use faculty and American Indian SME dialogues to inform humanities course content for a minimum of four courses (heritage languages, visual and performing arts, history, and politics). Objective 2: Engage CSUSM faculty in the delivery of humanities curricula using indigenous epistemologies to support access and retention of diverse populations in courses which include content relevant to American Indians, particularly American Indians in California.
