Native All Ivy Conference: Navigating Two Worlds

Saturday, April 7, 2018 - 8:30am to 8:00pm

Navigating Two Worlds - Native All Ivy Conference

Native alumni and friends are cordially invited

It is with great pride and excitement that Natives at Penn (NAP) announces that we will be hosting the Annual Ivy Native Council Spring Conference at the University of Pennsylvania April 6th-April 8th, 2018. Each semester one of the eight Ivy League Schools hosts the Ivy Native Summit in the Fall and another school hosts the Ivy Native Conference in the Spring. Each conference brings together about 100 Native and/or Indigenous Students from Ivy League and surrounding prestigious institutions. The 2018 theme for the conference is “Navigating Two Worlds.” The events will feature speakers and conversations on success within the higher education system and the transfer of those skills, abilities, and experiences to make a positive impact on Indian Country. As a cohort, we are excited to host this conversation and hope you will join us along this journey of implementing change in our communities and the world. Thank you for your time and consideration.
