University of Idaho President Don Burnett and Provost Kathy Aiken agreed to create a joint task force comprised of university and CRITFC staff, including University of Idaho Indigenous Affairs Liaison Arthur Taylor and CRITFC Workforce Development Coordinator Tana Atchley. The program will likely include undergraduate and graduate opportunities in fisheries and natural resource management. Core components of these efforts will emphasize strong support services and programs for tribal students.
Since 2005, CRITFC has contracted more than $9 million, including $2.3 million in CRITFC contributions to construct the Hagerman Lab.
