Indigenous People's Day Keynote

*Keynote is free and open to the public (family friendly)

In collaboration with members of the campus and greater Clemson communities, the Gantt Center offers co-curricular programs that build a complex understanding of diversity and social justice, while promoting the richness of diversity and inclusion. It allows for participants to explore multiple ways of knowing and unpack differences.

Our featured guest is Dr. Sasanehsaeh Pyawasay. Dr. Pyawasy is an enrolled member of the Menominee Nation and grew up on the Menominee Indian Reservation of Wisconsin. She received her B.A. in Sociology and M.A. in Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She recently graduated with her PhD in Organizational Leadership, Policy, and Development with an emphasis in Higher Education from the University of Minnesota. In additional to her scholarship, she also has more than 10 years of experience working in education, primarily serving underrepresented student populations. Sasānēhsaeh, a scholar-practitioner with a heavy lens oriented toward access has worked in various areas in education, in particular pre-college programming, multicultural affairs, admissions, academic advising and diversity programming. Sasānēhsaeh wants her research to extend and contribute to research in academia, to the Native community and higher education practitioners.
