Diversity and Inclusion Celebrations

Native American Heritage Month

Native American Heritage Month is recognized each November and gives our Bobcat family the opportunity to celebrate and uplift the many diverse cultures and important contributions of Native and Indigenous communities.

Join us in learning about the rich traditions and histories of Native people.

Indigenous Recognition

10-Point Plan, Goal 8

Appropriately acknowledge the Indigenous people of the land of this region who are Quinnipiac’s namesake.
Progress since the 2021 report:
  • The annual Indigeneity Teach-In was held Nov. 9 and co-sponsored by the Albert Schweitzer Institute and the Indigenous Student Union.

  • In partnership with the Office of Financial Aid, we are developing a strategy for an Indigenous student–focused scholarship.

  • We continue to work on the Indigeneity Initiative. We are in the process of finalizing scholarships, a Quinnipiac naming history and research on the descendants of the Quinnipiac.
