The Ruth A. Myers Center for Indigenous Education develops and facilitates quality educational experiences and services for those working in public service in schools, education, and other agencies serving American Indian people. The Center works in partnership with the American Indian community to:

  • Address the educational needs of Indigenous people
  • Increase the knowledge and understanding of educators from all levels about Indigenous people, languages, and cultures
  • Improve opportunities for Indigenous educators and students to succeed
  • Research, preserve, and share Indigenous languages and cultures

The Center also supports cohorts of American Indian students, who are instructed around an Ojibwe world view. The philosophy, course work, and course projects are related to the health, well-being, history, culture, and education of Native peoples. We provide effective educational experiences that allow American Indian students to translate and articulate their knowledge and skills into viable solutions.
