Clearinghouse Mission

We support culturally-responsive teaching and learning.

This means the Clearinghouse on Native Teaching & Learning will help teachers better connect with students to build strong relationships, which we know is an essential foundation for life-long learning.

Coming from a place-based framework, our mission is to identify effective curriculum resources, high-quality professional development materials and disseminate useful information and products to improve PreK-12 teaching and learning for American Indians and Alaska Natives. In collaboration and partnership with the Plateau Center for American Indian Studies and the Center for Mestizo and Indigenous Research & Outreach, the Clearinghouse will be promoting American Indian and Alaska Native education on the Washington State University (WSU) campus as a resource for teachers, administrators, faculty, students, and staff from the local and regional community.
