Strategies for Student Success – In-Service March 5, 2015

On March 5, 2015 we had a faculty in-service presentation and discussion that built upon a talk at the 2014 Vine Deloria, Jr. Indigenous Studies Symposium by Dr. Daniel Wildcat. Dr. Wildcat’s talk was followed by a presentation by Don McCluskey on how the ideas and principles in Dr. Wildcat’s talk apply at NWIC. Faculty then met in small groups to explore how these principles apply withing their own teaching and advising.
