Through the Native Pathways Initiative, the Haury Program supports the recruitment of faculty, researchers, students, and staff whose teaching, scholarship, or outreach centers on matters relevant to Native American and Indigenous resilience including:
- Addressing the severe water access challenges that face Native American and Indigenous communities, especially those facing Native American communities within Arizona
- Strengthening tribal customs and governance, and traditional knowledge
- Exploring ways of approaching resilience challenges of Native American and Indigenous communities that respect tribal customs and traditional knowledge
The UArizona Native Pathways Initiative aims to bolster traditionally underserved and underrepresented UArizona faculty, staff, and students committed to community-engaged learning, design thinking training, diverse and collaborative team-building, new technology development, and more impactful outreach that will promote tribal resilience ends.
