American Indian Projects



It is with great pleasure that I inform you about some of the many exciting activities and events happening in American Indian Projects (AIP) at the University of Minnesota Duluth. In the past few years AIP has been experiencing phenomenal growth and development in the recruitment and graduation of American Indian students. This is due in part, to the strong compliment of American Indian faculty and staff in the Department of Social Work, College of Education and Human Service Professions (CEHSP). A part of our success is that American Indian Projects is part of a supportive MSW program and college.


Exemplary outreach activities worth mentioning are the Cultural and Language Institutes and Learning Circle program which provide quality-based cultural competence training to outside organizations, but is also available to child welfare scholars, faculty, and staff. In addition to outreach, American Indian Projects provides ongoing support to graduates in contributing to the strength of tribal families and communities.


The American Indian Projects looks to the future with hope, optimism, and confidence, and we will move forward while maintaining our unique cultural distinction, autonomy, and unity. All of this contributes to a quality Masters of Social Work program within the UMD College of Education and Human Service Professions.
