Open forums for AVP for Indigenous and Native American Affairs candidates start Sept. 30

Steps of Colorado State University Administration Building during summer

Three finalists to serve as the first assistant vice president for Indigenous and Native American Affairs at Colorado State University will participate in forums open starting Sept. 30.

The AVP for Indigenous and Native American Affairs will lead CSU’s outreach efforts to Tribal communities and schools and work with Tribal leaders to determine partnerships to increase student recruitment and retention. Internally, this AVP will work with CSU’s administrative leadership (i.e. president, division vice presidents, deans and directors) to advance Indigenous and Native American initiatives for the University community and at the local, state, and national levels.

The position will report to the University president.

All open forums will be hybrid with an in-person and Zoom option. This schedule will be updated when times and locations for forums are finalized.

Feedback on candidates and their open forum presentations can be shared with the search committee online through the feedback page.
