The National Institute for Native Leadership in Higher Education (NINLHE), NAIC and ISAN Summer Institute is a time for professional development, networking with other educators, and personal renewal. Through this residential institute, educators with expertise in policies and practices vital to Native student success develop through our training sessions.
Institute attendance is purposely limited to provide participants with an intensive experience that focuses equally on knowledge and skill building, information sharing, and the opportunity to draw upon the accumulated wisdom and experiences of the presenters as well as colleagues.
In an atmosphere of collaboration, friendship, and fun, the Institute offers opportunities for spiritual renewal and personal empowerment. The Elder-In-Residence fulfills an important role within the Institute. The Elder will begin and end each day with a prayer and reflection. With his extensive background in higher education, the Elder-In-Residence will offer valuable context in which to consider our shared experiences throughout the Institute.
Native and non-Native administrators, professional staff, and faculty committed to supporting and increasing recruitment, retention and graduation of American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian and Aboriginal students at public, private, and tribal colleges and universities in the U.S. and Canada.
