Native American Studies

Gonzaga's Native American Studies Program will be celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2023. Your investment will support the program and its symposia. Program events include Salish language classes, and Native Knowledge scholars, artists, and knowledge-holders who speak and exhibit work about ways they work on behalf of their tribes and homelands.

For over 100 years Gonzaga has supported argument and debate as a cornerstone of a Jesuit education. Debate strives to promote a culture of intellectual inquiry and advocacy and students who debate will enhance a wide range of critical thinking and communication skills. Your support ensures students can access and benefit from Gonzaga debate now and into the future.
