(Albuquerque, NM) For the first time ever, the Anderson School of Management will host the All Pueblo Council of Governors meeting. The meeting will take place on Thursday, March 17 in the Jackson Student Center.

UNM President Bob Frank will welcome the 23 Governors comprising the 2016 New Mexico tribal leadership. The Council meets once a month to discuss matters affecting the tribal communities of the state. Anderson School representatives will have the opportunity to begin a conversation with the Governors regarding possible education partnerships between the tribal communities and the business school.

Dean Craig White and Audrey Arnold, Director of the Executive and Professional Education Center, will provide details about the graduate, undergraduate, customized, and certificate programs offered by UNM Anderson. Dean White says the discussion could have positive results for both sides:

"We are excited to have the opportunity to present the programs available at Anderson to the Council members," says Dean White. "We are hopeful that the School can help play a role in assisting the tribes in achieving their educational objectives."

The Anderson School is very supportive of Native American students at UNM. 179 Native American students are currently enrolled at the Anderson School. The Anderson Center for Indigenous Development and American Indian Business Association, both coordinated by Anderson staff member Jaye Francis, provides native students academic and other resources to help them achieve success at the collegiate level.
