The list of impediments to improving and broadening the reach of "civic" education for First Nations people is formidable, yet large gains stand to be made by strengthening the links between education and research. By attempting greater connection, research findings might be translated and applied more rapidly, successful tribal programs might be replicated (or adapted) and spread more quickly, the focus of research work might be sharpened, and a new set of inter-institutional ties might be created. These are the challenges that this National Executive Education Program for Native American Leadership seminar was designed to address.
