Dear Prospective and Current Students and Community Members,
We are excited to host our annual Gathering of Native American Students (GONAS) 2020. This year’s theme is “cultural sustainability through community involvement.” GONAS is for Indigenous high school juniors, seniors, and college undergraduate and graduate students in the Chicago area. However, all are welcome.
This two-day virtual event will focus on building collaborative relationships among students who are interested in higher education and community organizations that support their academic endeavors. Through online activities, students will share their perspectives on higher education and explore resources and opportunities to get involved with the greater Chicago Indigenous community.
GONAS is free to attend! Registration required. Given our current health climate, we have decided to host GONAS virtually over two days.
