National Native American Heritage Month
We would like to take a moment to honor the fact that we are on Dakota land.This is the ancestral homeland of the Dakota people who were forcibly exiled from the land because of aggressive and persistent settler colonialism. We make this acknowledgment to honor the Dakota people, ancestors, and descendants, as well as the land itself.

Today, we honor the culture, heritage, and resilience of Native Americans. National Native American Heritage Month celebrates and honors Native Americans and commemorates their histories and cultures.
This day is an effort to tell the truth about our country's history and a recognition that the fight for liberation and justice still continues.

Post -Election Reflection

While acknowledging the divisive nature of our current social and political climate, it is equally important to emphasize the importance of unity in finding common ground to make a better nation for all of us. We don’t always agree, nor should we. Healthy debate, critical discourse, and critical analysis are the hallmarks of an academic community. However, in the midst of that, we cannot afford to lose our humanity and forget that there is a difference between politics and fundamental human rights. 
We want to acknowledge the impact the election may have on our students, faculty, staff, and extended community. It is important now more than ever that we work together to build a better nation for all of us.

**Our staff is available for support and to process together. Please see our office hours above.
