Family Context of Rural Homelessness
Center for Native American Studies
A retention effort by the NMU Center for Native American Studies to engage American Indian students in academic, cultural, and social activities in an effort to give students a sense of community on campus. Retention rates for American Indian students on average are lower than their non-Native counterparts. Such a program helps students to connect with the university in another way that underlines who they are as multi-cultural students. Comments have been very positive of the varied types of activities.
