The College of Education Diversity Committee is kicking off its new speaker series on February 23 with Center for the Study of Higher Education alumna Amanda Tachine, a Navajo from Ganado, Arizona. She is Náneesht’ézhí Táchii’nii (Zuni Red Running into Water clan) born for Tl’izilani (Many Goats clan). She is an assistant professor in educational leadership and innovation at Arizona State University.
Tachine’s research centers on exploring college access and persistence among Indigenous college students. Tachine was recognized by President Obama with the White House Champions of Change: Young Women Empowering Communities Award for creating Native SOAR, a multi-generation mentoring program to increase college access among Native youth and families.
