Native American Advisory Council


The Native American Advisory Council (NAAC) provides workforce development, student recruitment and retention, and research that are key to advancing mutually beneficial initiatives between sovereign Native Nations and the University of Arizona. Advisory Council members also serve as ambassadors supporting and advancing the UA’s strategic priorities.

We are committed to serving as a communications conduit between Southern Arizona’s Native American communities and the UA. We also value and welcome your input. Please email your questions, suggestions, or comments. The membership of NAAC is listed here.
