Tribal Environmental Management and Planning  September 14 - December 6, 2015

"The NAU / ITEP Strategic Planning for Environmental Professionals “Module 1” has provided a breadth of information about planning. It has been good for me to immerse myself in education, discussion, and reflection on this topic. I have a new appreciation of the value of planning and I’m happy to have some tools to approach it step by step. I intend to apply concepts learned in this course to my approach to leading the Environmental Department for the Tribe…" ~Spring 2015 Tribal Environmental Management & Planning Course Participant

"The discussions have proved to be really helpful in learning and sharing with the other course participants. It is nice to know certain situations or challenges are not unique to here and also to learn other approaches to overcoming those challenges." ~Spring 2015 Tribal Environmental Management & Planning Course Participant

Tribal Water Resources Management  Spring 2016    
The first two courses (and their individual modules) will be offered by NAU faculty, Native American legal experts, and tribal instructors with support from Northern Arizona University’s College of Engineering, Forestry, and Natural Sciences and the Applied Indigenous Studies program. The courses provide unique, tribally focused, and applied instruction to environmental professionals.  
A team consisting of NAU faculty, Native American legal experts, and experienced tribal environmental professionals have developed the content of the courses. This team of experts will guide lesson plans and offer valuable knowledge and insight into current tribal environmental policy, technical, and management issues.
More courses are being developed, so remember to check back periodically for new course additions!
