American Indian Studies: Policy Studies

The Electa Quinney American Indian Education and Policy Studies Institute

Continuing the tradition of Electa Quinney, a Stockbridge-Mohican woman and the first public school teacher in Wisconsin, UWM established the Electa Quinney American Indian Education and Policy Studies Institute. Initiated through the generous gift of the Indian Community School, the Institute is a catalyst for American Indian education and policy initiatives, facilitating the development of new programs, services, and research opportunities at UWM, in partnership with the American Indian community and tribes in Wisconsin. The Institute carrries out a comprehensive agenda for American Indian programming at UWM, and its transdisciplinary mission brings together perspectives Indian-related and faculty from many different disciplines, to focus on American education and policy studies.
