Native American Programs

Native American Advisory Council

A Native American Advisory Council (NAAC), composed of statewide native leaders, Willamette native alumni, and Willamette native students, was formed in May 2006 to advise Willamette on its work with and service to Native American communities.

Indian Country Conversations

The Indian Country Conversations program is a series of encounters that brings leaders from Native American and indigenous communities to Willamette University to interact with the campus, the broader community, local reservation communities, and the Chemawa Indian School (a federal boarding school located in Salem).

Chemawa Indian School Partnership Program

The Chemawa Indian School Tutoring Program trains Willamette student volunteers to become mentors and tutors for high school students at a federal Indian school in Salem.
