Events: Native American Student Day 2018 (Call for Proposals)


Native American Student Day is March 29, 2018 (Thursday).  An important part of the day are the UW Experience workshops.  These are experiential learning workshops offered by UW departments and campus programs.  Students will choose two 45-minute workshops.

We invite you to be a part of this UW Experience by offering workshops that are engaging and highlight potential majors and career paths.  The workshops will take place at a location of your choosing.  Students will be escorted to and from the Intellectual House to your workshop.  All you have to do is provide the space and program.  This will allow students to see UW at a deeper level than the student tour. 

The UW Experience Agenda:

10.00 – 10.15     students leave Intellectual House
10.15 – 11.00     Workshop #1
11.00 – 11.15     transition
11.15 – 12.00     Workshop #2
12.00     students escorted back to the Intellectual House

About NASD

Native American Student Day is an annual event where American Indian/Alaska Native high school students visit campus and experience the University of Washington.  This day honors the legacy and relationship that the University of Washington has with tribes and Native students.  The goal is for students to have a day of experiential learning, learn about the University of Washington, and how to get ready for secondary education.  This year we celebrate the Office of Minority Affairs & Diversity’s 50th anniversary and the power of the student voice that led to the creation of OMA&D and the Intellectual House.
