Use the feedback form to provide input about this policy
This policy implements and supplements Arizona Board of Regents (“ABOR”) Policy 1-118, which requires good faith consultation with federally recognized Native American tribes regarding proposed research, initiatives, agreements, programs, policies, or other activities that may have foreseeable implications for tribes or their individual members. Northern Arizona University respects and acknowledges the culture, traditions, beliefs, governance processes, tribal laws, codes, regulations, and protocols of the sovereign tribes and is committed to fulfilling this important obligation. The University will work to ensure that all members of its community or those acting under its auspices comply with all applicable tribal laws, codes, and regulations. As the University’s Tribal Liaison, the Vice President for Native American Initiatives must review and approve all proposed University projects, programs, or initiatives with foreseeable implications for the tribes or members of a tribe.
All proposals should be submitted using the Tribal Consultation Proposal Form. Please allow 10 business days for review.
