Indian Nations Summit Travels From Virginia Tech to U.Va. For New Collaboration
For the first time in its five-year existence, the annual Virginia Indian Nations Summit on Higher Education at Virginia will be held at U.Va. The summit, usually held at Virginia Tech, will run March 18-20, and will reflect a new partnership for U.Va. and Tech. The Office of the Vice President and Provost is working with the Native American Student Union, Virginia Tech and the Virginia Council on Indians to host public sessions throughout the weekend, some of which are part of the Virginia Festival of the Book. In addition, representatives from Virginia’s tribes will be meeting throughout the weekend to discuss their educational initiative, Virginia Indians 101, a curriculum that will provide information about their history and current efforts.
