Advising, Mentorship (ISPAs), & Student Support Partnerships

The Native American Program is dedicated to the support of student academic, cultural, and social success and wellbeing through a combination of advising, tutoring, programming, and more. 

The NAP partners with several campus resources in order for students to be optimally supported. The resources include the Academic Skills Center, Writing Center, Dartmouth Emerging Engineers, and the Teaching Science Fellows. 

Students are encouraged to schedule advising meetings with the NAP Director and their undergraduate dean to ensure their concerns and/or areas of need are met.

Student Advising

Students can schedule advising meetings to discuss academic concerns and personal matters that affect their wellbeing. We connect students with the appropriate campus resources and offices while also guiding students through the process to ensure that they are supported and that their concerns are addressed.

Indigenous Student Peer Advisers

Indigenous Student Peer Advisors (ISPAs) are current Native and Indigenous undergraduate students who support the mission of the NAP through mentorship of first-year Native and Indigenous students. Each ISPA is assigned to a student resource center or program, and works to fully understand the support structure and processes for utilizing the center/program from a student perspective. The information is then shared with peers though one-on-one mentoring and informative programming. 

Workshops and Information Sessions

Each term, the NAP hosts workshops and info sessions that support student growth and academic well-being. Information for these sessions is found in the NAP Weekly Newsletter and posted in the NAP Student Lounge.
