American Indian scholars join ASU faculty
Indian Country Today reported on Arizona State University's appointment of five American Indian scholars in the fields of law, social transformation, American Indian studies, and social and family dynamics.
According to ASU President Michael Crow, the appointments are examples of how ASU is committed to diversity and the school’s recognition of social responsibility.
“We will encourage scholars from a spectrum of disciplines to offer different perspectives," Crow said. "Teaching and research related to American Indian culture has been underway at Arizona State University for decades, but the American Indian Initiative is proving transformational in the development of the field, and confirms the university’s commitment to programs that are socially relevant.”
