Act 31 on the UW Campus
The Act's greatest impact on programs at the University of Wisconsin, is that each teacher seeking a license from the state must have instruction in American Indian history, culture and tribal sovereignty, Meeting the requirement of Act 31 is more than an obligation for certification; it represents our university’s commitment to serve our diverse communities and the American Indian tribes and bands who reside within its borders. The Act 31 Coordinator connects with various partners in the School of Education and across the State of Wisconsin to develop the Act 31 implementation plan for the School of Education.
