As a part of the School of Gender, Race, and Nations, INST advances the dynamic interdisciplinary studies examining historically underserved populations and their contributions. PSU is the only college in the state of Oregon to offer a major in Indigenous Nations and Native American studies. The program focuses on Tribal race theory, decolonizing methodologies, traditional and cultural ecological knowledge, and contemporary themes, such as community health, food sovereignty, Indigenous land/resource management, community development, resilience, and self-determination.
