January, 2019 – Developing curriculum at Northwest Indian College

January 11, 2019

In early January the Canadian Studies Center, Center for Global Studies, and the Global Business Center met with colleagues at Northwest Indian College (NWIC) as part of a joint Title VI-NWIC collaboration in curriculum development. This past summer Myron Fryberg, Jr. developed the first course to build a concentration in cross-border curriculum for the bachelor’s in Tribal Governance and Business Management, ECON 388: Traditional Historical Trade in the Pacific Northwest. The course will look at traditional trade relations between Indigenous nations in Canada and the United States. Following this, Fryberg will develop a course that compares and contrasts contemporary governance and business management on both sides of the border.
