Bemidji State University is part of a 3-year grant project with a goal to have students appreciate and use both Scientific and Indigenous Knowledge perspectives to help bring about long-term, sustainable changes in the world.

Undergraduate Interns, Summer

Goal: To provide undergraduate students with hands-on learning opportunities key to developing their multiple worldview thinking and leadership skills

Eligibility: Any student enrolled at Bemidji State University, Leech Lake Tribal College, Red Lake Nation College, White Earth Tribal and Community College, or Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College

Six undergraduate students will be selected to participate in hands-on learning internships each summer. Each student will be paired with a mentor who has a background in an aspect of local Indigenous Knowledge with a direct connection to sustainability. Ideas for these might include (but not limited to) walleye fish restoration efforts by the Red Lake Department of Natural Resources, wild rice programs coordinated by the Division of Natural Resources at Leech Lake, or food sovereignty efforts coordinated by White Earth Tribal and Community College Extension, among others.

Sustainability Fellows, School Year

Goal: To provide graduate students with first-hand experience in how to create institutional change in social sustainability

Eligibility: Any student enrolled in a graduate program at Bemidji State University

Two graduate students will be selected during the academic year to serve as sustainability fellows. Indigenous students are encouraged to apply. The fellows will become a member of the Niizhoo Gwayakochigewin collaborative. The sustainability fellows will analyze quantitative (numbers) and qualitative (stories) program measures of success, including entry and exit surveys. Students will help assess how well the program is achieving its proposed goals and main ideas and will also help prepare the results for presentation. Sustainability fellows will serve as peer mentors for undergraduate students, relaying their own stories of sustainability for one on one learning.
