“Native Voices: Native Peoples’ Concepts of Health and Illness” explores the relationship between health and culture of Native Americans and Pacific Islanders. The exhibit is currently on display at SLCC libraries.
SLCC hosted multiple events this month to feature Pacific Islanders and their unique culture.
SLCC will soon offer a new course to help Pacific Islander students succeed in school.
The Student Voices Project promotes college attendance and has students of Pacific Islander origins talk about their struggles and how they overcame those challenges.
SLCC Institutional Research conducted a study in 2011 and found that 41% of Native American and Pacific Islander students who did not re-enroll had a grade-point average of 3.5 or higher.
