In Defense of Rigor
By Ryan Winn for "Tribal College Journal"

Ryan Winn column

The University of Arizona’s Biosphere 2 had a fatal oversight. The enclosed miniature replica of our planet was intended to monitor how plants grow when unencumbered. The working theory was that unchallenged nature would create a botanical utopia whose revelations could then be applied in the real world. At first the trees flourished, growing faster than they would outside the sphere. Then they collapsed before reaching maturity. The oversight was that there wasn’t any wind in the sphere. In nature, wind causes constant stress to trees that transform them into organisms that can endure. Without the challenge brought by both calm and strong winds, the trees never learned how to thrive. Whenever I’m defending rigor, I evoke the lesson of Biosphere 2. In academics, as in life, it’s how we overcome adversity that defines us. Read more


Digging Into Food Sovereignty: A Student Led Exploration

Food sovereignty

The Sustainability Leadership Cohort (SLC) has taken action to bring awareness of the need to reclaim our food sovereignty as a community. The students have learned from community members the uses for many plants in the forest. They have conducted interviews with foresters, traditional knowledge holders and practioners to gain a new perspective of the forest and the reciprocal relationship that must take place.

With the experience gained throughout their time in the SLC, the group produced and edited a documentary. The documentary focuses on promoting food sovereignty and community wellness in Menominee. Watch the video

Outing Brings in Thousands for Scholarships

Golf Outing

The College welcomed 146 golfers to its 7th Annual Benefit Golf Outing on June 9 on the Thornberry Creek at Oneida course.

Again this year, the biggest winners were CMN students who will receive scholarships and other aid funded through event proceeds.

Net profit from the 2017 outing was $25,338 and brings the golf outing's cumulative profit to more than $141,000 since the inaugural event. Read more

Helping Students Learn – An AQIP Action Project

The College of Menominee Nation has the honor of being the only tribal college participating in the Higher Learning Commission’s rigorous Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP). As part of AQIP requirements, CMN must have at least three quality improvement projects in place at all times.

This semester a faculty and staff team began work on an AQIP project entitled, “Improving Student Learning through a Sustainable Academic Program Review Process.” An academic program review process allows faculty, administration, staff, and the Board of Trustees, among others, to assess student learning, determine the contribution a program makes to the communities we serve, and to gauge the relevancy of a program.

Engineers Save the Day
A new children’s book series created by students at College of Menominee Nation presents engineers as problem-solving heroes
By Ryan Winn

Stem

Simply put, there aren’t enough Native Americans pursuing STEM degrees. As the National Science Foundation reported in its Science and Engineering Indicators 2008 Report, American Indians and Alaska Natives received a mere 0.4% of all master’s degrees in science and engineering between 1985 and 2005. Examining barriers, research has documented a widespread belief among American Indian students, even in the early years of their education, that science, math and engineering fields are difficult, uninteresting, and not relevant to their lives.
