Dr. John Tippeconnic III

Friday, May 3rd, 2019 at 2:00 - 3:30 PM
On UO Campus, HEDCO Education Building, Room 220

The education of American Indians and Alaska Natives has been and continues to be challenging for students, parents, educators, administrators, policy-makers, and others that implement policies and direct programs. Many students do well in school, including colleges and universities, but too many continue to struggle. After 50 years serving as an Indian educator in institutions of higher education, Dr. Tippeconnic will reflect on the past, comment on the present and discuss the future of Indian education.
