Director's Message

Welcome to the Center for First Nations Education located on the UWGB campus in Wood Hall 410. We offer a physical space for ALL to gather, visit, and offer encouragement to one another as Indigenous people have done since the beginning of time. We foster the renewal of Indigenous ways of knowing and being across the University both formally and informally inside and outside of the classroom. The Center is also an Act 31 resource for K-16 education.

Native American Experience at UWGB

College is a time of transition for all students. But some Native American students say it’s a more difficult transition for them.

"I’ve always attended a tribal school my entire life. I’ve always been the majority. I’ve always been immersed and surrounded by my people," said UW-Green Bay junior Luanne Funmaker, a Psychology and First Nation Studies Major. "So when I come here, it's a culture shock. It was really difficult for me to adjust."
