Our programs and projects prepare students to become effective child welfare practitioners, particularly in working with American Indian families through offering stipends, coursework and other cultural and experiential learning opportunities. The Center also partners with tribes, county agencies, and non-profits in Minnesota to help improve American Indian child welfare practice and reduce the disparities experienced by families in the child welfare system. For more information on partnering with the Center, please contact Estelle Simard, Center Director.
