Unveiling of the How-to-Get-to-College Poster in the Luiseño language which was made possible through a grant graciously provided by Southwest Airlines.
On May 9, 2013, the California Indian Culture & Sovereignty Center unveiled the CSU's How-to-Get-to-College brochure in Luiseño. Representatives from six Luiseño Bands--La Jolla, Pala, Pauma, Pechanga, Rincon and Soboba-- were presented with the brochure. The director of the California Indian Culture & Sovereignty Center, Professor Joely Proudfit, worked with Eric Elliott, a linguist and an expert in the Luiseño language, to create the brochure. Production of the college information in Luiseño was financed through a grant provided by Southwest Airlines.
“The academic performance and college attainment of Native American students is of high importance to our state and nation. We are proud of our partnership with the California Indian Culture and Sovereignty Center to inform Native American families about how their children can prepare early for college.”
-CSU Chancellor Timothy P. White
