Club Leadership, Advisors, and Funding

This club was founded by Emily Cohen, Jeffry Crews, Evelyn Robbins, Danelle Shellikoff, Gala Mackie, Jessica Turner, and Malia Simpson with the support of co-advisors Dr. Veronica Howard (Associate Professor, Psychology) and D'Arcy Hutchings (Associate Professor, Library).

Club advocacy efforts in Spring 2022 were possible thanks to grant funding provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Institute of Food and Agriculture, specifically their Alaska Native-Serving and Native Hawaiian-Serving Institutions Education Competitive Grants Program.
