The Indigenous Resilience Center, in partnership with AIR, will host a six-part interactive workshop series in which a cohort will receive training and learn wise practices on environmental research with tribal communities. These workshops are designed to engage student, faculty, and staff researchers in learning about working with our tribal partners. The workshops, described on the attached flyer, will be led by colleagues from across campus who work with various communities. Each session will have an interactive dialogue, lunch, and breakout sessions where attendees can engage in exercises.

This training is sponsored by UArizona Provost Investment Funds and the TRIF Water, Environmental and Energy Solutions (WEES) Initiative, administered by the Arizona Institute for Resilience.

The IRes team is asking that members of the cohort prepare to join in for all sessions. There will be no registrations for individual sessions. These will also be in-person workshops and food will be provided.

You can register to join the cohort here:  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSf4L-J21Vr-h5XHgecSUUfRst9hjmY-aQbpzH9bt7pcqI2VOA/viewform

For more information or questions, please feel free to contact Daniel Sestiaga, IRes Program Manager: dsestiaga@arizona.edu. Additional information about the location for the trainings in ENR2 will be sent to participants.

This year’s program is intended to be a pilot program, with the possibility of expanding to an annual training series in future years. Please share this opportunity with relevant colleagues and sign up today to join IRes for this unique training opportunity!

60 years ago, at LDA's very first conference, Dr. Samuel Kirk coined the term "learning disabilities," which would spark a national movement for progress for individuals with learning disabilities, including legislation, programs, services, and funding for LD research. Ever since, LDA is proud to offer annual conferences that aim to raise awareness about LD and provide individuals, educators, families, and professionals with the latest information on learning disability topics. 

Tribal education departments and tribal educators interested in making sure that Native American students are college ready will find many sessions at the LDA Conference addressing key issues for secondary and post-secondary success.


Sessions of particular interest may be:

  • Understanding Evolving Learning Disability Documentation Requirements in Postsecondary Education
  • The Misconceptions of Faculty about Post-Secondary Students with Disabilities.
  • Updates at ETS: New Tele Assessment Guidance and Tips for Assisting Test Takers with Accommodation Requests
  • Preparing middle and high school students now…for life after high school!
  • Everyday Self-Advocacy for the Neurodivergent Student: Skills to Practice Today to Foster Success in College
  • The Reading Scores Don't Lie: Developing a Comprehensive Reading Program in the High School English Classes that Works
  • Accommodations – Understanding and Accessing Testing Accommodations on High Stakes Exams
  • Disrupting Ableism – Setting Inclusive Expectations for Success
  • Setting Up Students for Post-Secondary Success: The keys to facilitating effective online transition programs for students with neurodevelopmental disorders
