Reading Group: “Beyond the Asterisk: Understanding Native Students in Higher Education” (Mar. 29–Apr. 16) (Live Session: Apr. 22)

Our next CATL “Tough Talk” will be around the book Beyond the Asterisk: Understanding Native Students in Higher Education by editors Heather J. Shotton, Shelly C. Lowe, and Stephanie J. Waterman. This book will help us lead discussions about how to better support our First Nations students and support those who are trying to remove the asterisk as a signaling tool for First Nations peoples in research and practice. You can access the e-book for free through the library.

From Mar. 29 through Apr. 16 we will host asynchronous discussions covering readings and resources our co-facilitator, Crystal Lepscier, finds of value for this topic. We’ll leave the discussions open for about three weeks, and then those of us who are able to meet online will convene on Thursday, Apr. 22 from 1–2 p.m. via Microsoft Teams to discuss some actionable, tangible strategies or steps we can take to affect change at UW-Green Bay. We will also be joined by Adrienne Thunder and Steven Martin, co-authors of Chapter 2, for our discussions! Click below to register for access to the Canvas course and meeting link.
