Students, Faculty and Staff Enjoy Welcome Luncheon for Native American Students

Thursday, September 6, 2012

To celebrate the start of a new academic year, students, faculty and staff at KU were invited to attend a Welcome Luncheon for Native American students held at the Kansas Union.  The annual event, organized by Patti Wakolee, Senior Academic Advisor and coordinator of the Haskell Transfer Program and Haskell/KU Exchange Program, provides an opportunity for students to meet and learn about campus resources and upcoming events. 

Fred Rodriguez, Vice Provost for Diversity and Equity and Executive Director of the KU Multicultural Scholars Program, welcomed the group and provided an overview of the work his office does on campus. Representatives from the Indigenous Studies program, the Native Faculty and Staff Council and the First Nations Student Association were on hand to introduce themselves and announce upcoming events.

The event was sponsored by the Coca-Cola Company, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the Indigenous Studies program.
