BUILD: Land Acknowledgement – Recognizing and Respecting Indigenous Peoples  promotional image

The Building University of Iowa Leadership for Diversity initiative is an opportunity for UI faculty and staff to gain strategic knowledge and skills to contribute to a welcoming and inclusive environment for all. By completing a series of workshops, participants will earn a certificate demonstrating their commitment as leaders for diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace and classroom.

The Native American Council (NAC) will present on the importance of land acknowledgments. Land Acknowledgments are formal statements that recognize and respect Indigenous Peoples as traditional stewards of the land. This workshop will achieve the following objectives: 1) define land acknowledgements, 2) describe the ways Land Acknowledgements respect Indigenous Peoples, and 3) give you examples of ways you can integrate land acknowledgments into your role at the University of Iowa.
