College of Menominee Nation Introduces New Bachelor of Science Program

 

Dr. Frank Kutka

The College of Menominee Nation (CMN) has created a new Bachelor of Science Program, Sustainable Agriculture. The program is an extension of the Associate of Arts and Sciences Natural Resources program at CMN. Any associate degree graduates in Natural Resources from CMN and other accredited institutions are encouraged to apply for the upcoming Fall 2021 semester.

 

The focus of this new program centers on sustainability among Indigenous Nations and communities. Although not a commonly used term, “food sovereignty” has gained local interest. The need to address food-related issues and general community interest in learning about traditional foods, gardening, and improved wellness through relationships with the natural environment stems from community input sessions held in 2015 and 2016. In 2019, CMN faculty and staff began working on the development of this program.

 

Sustainable Agriculture is about addressing issues of land sovereignty, natural systems, government policies, ancient to modern technologies, economics, and human biological and social systems. Upon completion, graduates will be resilient and creative with the ability to think critically, communicate, and enhance the lives of those in Indigenous communities and beyond. Bachelor of Science degree holders in this program can be self-employed or seek employment in agricultural production, food and nutrition, natural resources, and more. In addition, they may continue with their higher education enrolling in a graduate program.

 

Competitive scholarships covering tuition and fees are available for the first year of the program. To learn more contact Luis Ortiz, Enrollment Manager, at 715-799-5600, ext. 3065, or lortiz@menominee.edu.

The fall semester begins August 15 at the College of Menominee Nation, an accredited baccalaureate-level Tribal College and University. Serving both American-Indian and non-Indian students, the College is open to all with campus locations in Keshena and Green Bay, Wisconsin.
