    Did you know, according to the Postsecondary National Policy Institute, only 41% of Native American students ages 18-24 complete a degree within 6 years?  Did you know this is considerably less than other student groups? Come join a discussion about working with Native American students and supporting them through the financial aid process.  We’ll talk about how past historical traumas may be influencing your Native American students and how to best support them in their higher education journey. Let’s work together to change this statistic for the benefit of our students.
