The event is being held at UNC-Chapel Hill’s American Indian Center, the only center of its kind within the 17-campus system.

The presentation will be followed by brief remarks by Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost James W. Dean Jr. of UNC-Chapel Hill and representatives from N.C. State University and UNC-Pembroke.
