NAU breaks ground on Native American Culture Center
New center to house Applied Indigenous Studies program

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - Blessed by a morning rain shower, the official ground breaking for a new Native American Cultural Center was celebrated by members of the Arizona Board of Regents, NAU President John Haeger, tribal and city officials and dozens of Native students who are currently enrolled at the NAU campus. The new building, which will house the Applied Indigenous Studies program, will be built on NAU's campus directly across from the Cline Library, to the immediate left front of the Student Union. Construction of the center will begin this fall with a grand opening slated for Fall 2011.
