Faculty Fellows

Over 60 faculty members from over 25 disciplines have participated in the UAA/APU Difficult Dialogues faculty intensive training since the first intensives were held in May 2006. The most recent group completed the training in May 2008.

A "second tier" faculty intensive will convene in May 2009 to explore issues and techniques of particular importance to Alaska Native peoples. The 2009-10 Fellows were drawn from participants in previous years.
