Bemidji State University receives 2023-2024 Catalyst Initiative Grant:

As part of Bemidji State University’s five-year strategic plan, “Inspired by Place, Enriched by Diversity,” the Department of Professional Education at BSU is hoping to better engage and empower aspiring teachers in the Anishinaabe American Indian communities, on whose ancestral home BSU is located. The teacher corps will seek to accomplish this through a network of peer and school mentors, and funded opportunities to visit BSU’s campus.
