American Indian Resource Center

The Navigator 2012-14

The American Indian Resource Center serves as a resource for Native American students as well as other students. The center provides assistance to students seeking help with school and other issues and has a primary mission of developing a connection between the university and tribal communities.

The Center was responsible for the renaming of Conference Rooms A, B, C, & D in the Bay Tree Building to acknowledge the indigenous tribes of the area and the rooms were renamed: Amah Mutsun, Esselen Nation, Muwekma Ohlone, Cervantes and Velasquez, who were the last two fluent speakers of the Mutsun Language. The Center sponsors programs throughout the year, that primarily focus on culture, nutrition, mental health, social justice, and the media.

The Center offers a high school outreach program titled R.E.A.C.H. and the American Indian Peer Mentoring Initiative “Full Circle.” The office is located on the third floor of the Bay Tree Building. For more information, call 459-2881, or visit the American Indian Resource Center web site.
