All workshops and events are provided through the college’s 1994 land grant funding through the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture and through a traditional arts grant from the American Indian College Fund.
Workshops are open to the community! You do not have to be a student to attend our workshops. To register for a workshop – reply to this email, or email firstname.lastname@example.org, or stop in to Rm 615, or call us at 715-634-4790 Ext 121.
