ITA-TTI Champions Native November on Campus

In recognition of Native American Heritage Month, Information Technology Academy’s Tribal Technology Institute’s (ITA-TTI) Program Manager, Christopher Kilgour, helped plan UW-Madison’s Native November events. Highlights of the month include Academic and Career Advising for Native Communities on November 2nd, the “Protecting the Water: The Importance of the Protest at Standing Rock” presentation on November 14th and Indigenous Cooking Workshop on November 18th.

As our first ITA-TTI Lac du Flambeau and ITA-TTI Oneida students submit their UW-Madison applications and prepare to graduate this spring, we are increasingly focused on ensuring that a welcoming environment awaits them on the UW-Madison campus.

“ITA-TTI is one of many partners who worked hard on not only these events, but on improving the climate for Native American students on campus,” Kilgour says. “We want to see our students thrive and taking part in these positive initiatives is a way ITA-TTI can help.”

Other partners involved in Native November include Pathways to Educational Achievement, Division of Diversity, Equity and Educational Achievement, Multicultural Student Center, Wisconsin Indigenous Law, LGBT Campus Center, Native American Center for Health Professions (NACHP), Division of University Housing’s Residence Life, American Indian Studies and the Alpha Pi Omega Sorority.
