Indigenous Strategic Plan

It's been almost eight years since the Native American Outreach and Inclusion Task Force Report was published and Native American and Indigenous initiatives continue to grow and evolve at Northwestern. In Fall of 2022, Northwestern launched the Native American and Indigenous Strategic Planning process and appointed a Strategic Planning Committee of faculty, staff, and students across the University.

The process is expected to take place over the course of the 2022-2024 academic years and will begin with a series of information gathering and conversations that will provide opportunities for engagement and input of community stakeholders.  The process will culminate with the development of a set of institutional priorities and a framework for guiding our direction through the end of the 2027 academic year.  

Jasmine Gurneau, Director of Native American and Indigenous Affairs, will serve as Chair of the Native American and Indigenous Strategic Planning Committee. The full Committee membership is listed below:
