About Cherokee Studies

Mission Statement

Cherokee Studies develops and coordinates programs and courses relating to Native American or Cherokee studies and serves as a resource for Native American students and the Cherokee community.  Goals of Cherokee Studies include expanding course offerings, especially in the Cherokee language, developing an exchange program involving faculty and students, increasing the enrollment of Cherokee and other Native American students at Western, increasing the number of Cherokee Studies students, involving members of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians in every class within the Cherokee Studies program as instructors, co-instructors, or presenters, increasing awareness of the cultural landscape of our campus, increasing awareness of Cherokee history and culture within the university community, and  promoting long-term partnerships with the Eastern Band to foster community development and revitalization.
