Native American Studies Coronavirus/COVID-19 Information
Native American Studies faculty and staff will work remotely for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester to carry out daily business operations and online instruction.
Please visit coronavirus.ou.edu for complete and up-to-date information from the University.
All department classes will be taught online, in accordance with University policy.
Instructors will be in touch with students in the coming days with more information on how classes will be conducted.
We ask that students and instructors visit and throroughly engage with the OU Learn Anywhere and Teach Anywhere pages for guidance on learning and teaching remotely.
Native American Studies advising will be hosted 100% online. Reach out to your advisor by email. Zoom appointments can be arranged if in-person conversations are needed.
All Native American Studies and Native Nations Center in-person meetings and events are cancelled or postponed until further notice.
Community is a cornerstone of the Department of Native American Studies mission. Our spring semester is full of wonderful events such as the Oklahoma Native American Youth Language Fair, Native Crossroads Film Festival, the OU Spring Powwow, Gamma Delta Pi Hoops Tournament, many impromptu stickball games, the American Indian Achievement Celebration, the Native American Studies Year-End Celebration and many more.
We especially regret that we won't have the opportunity to celebrate our graduates and scholarship recipients this year, as we have in years past - coming together for a nice meal and sharing the pride that we have for our students, faculty, and staff. Our 2019-2020 graduates and their families & friends will receive an invitation to our next in-person graduation. What a celebration it will be!
Native American Studies and Native Nation Center physical spaces in Copeland Hall will be closed for the foreseeable future.
NAS faculty, staff and students should not return to their offices until further notice, unless for medical reasons (ex: you need to retrieve medication from your office).
