New Indigenous Governance Certificate!
The University of Arizona's Native Nations Institute and Indigenous Peoples Law & Policy Program, the world's leading experts in Indigenous law and governance, have joined together to offer a continuing education program in Indigenous Governance. The Certificate in Indigenous Governance is a 12 credit continuing education program designed to equip those working with and for tribal governments with the tools necessary to build successful Native nations.
The Certificate in Indigenous Governance is not a university degree, but rather a more flexible, practical, and cost-effective way for people working with Native nations to acquire cutting edge information that will be of immediate use in their jobs. The program's faculty have a combined total of more than 150 years' experience working with Indigenous communities, which means they bring practical experience to the classroom and not just "book learning."
The certificate program combines short in-person classes with classes taken on line at the student's pace. The classes cover subjects from Boundaries of Government Authority to Native Justice Systems to Rebuilding Native Nations. The first semester of the program begins January 16, 2012; applications for this session must be received by December 15, 2011. The attached materials provide you with a complete course list and application details. Please feel free to forward this email to anyone who might be interested in the program.
