Land Grant or Land Grab

Tuesday, January 25, 2022 | 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. ET
Zoom Webinar


In 1893, the University of Connecticut became Connecticut’s Land Grant college. This land spans 12 states originally stewarded by Indigenous tribes. Our history is intertwined in the violent dispossession of Native and Indigenous peoples across Native America. Join us to understand the long-standing history and experiences of Native and Indigenous peoples at UConn and seek to understand your place in that history which has disproportionately benefited white citizens. 

Please RSVP by Tuesday, January 25, 2022.
