Native American House Advisory Committee

The purpose of the Advisory Committee is to review, evaluate, and make recommendations regarding the policies, programs and services of the Native American House. The committee also provides advice and recommendations regarding resources related to the support for the center, including budget, personnel, and facilities.

The committee should seek to enhance the center’s goals of supporting the educational, cultural, social and developmental needs of students, and of advancing multicultural awareness on campus and in the wider community.

Two students from this committee will serve as representatives on the Student Cultural Programming Fee Committee, which is charged with evaluating applications for use of funds generated from the Cultural Programming Fee. That committee will make recommendations for disbursement of those funds to the Associate Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs.
