A central conference theme of Raising Indigenous Voices in Academia is to
highlight Indigenous knowledge and scholarship with the goal to raise
awareness of the lack of Indigenous scholars representing Indigenous
scholarship in academia. Specific times have been set aside for attendees to
discuss thoughts about the scholarship presented and how that can contribute
to college and university communities. All scholars and administrators are
welcome to register and attend. Indigenous scholars, as perhaps the most
underrepresented ethnic group globally, are especially encouraged to submit
a presentation proposal.
