At the end of its partnership with the 13 Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC) universities in June 2008, the Newberry inaugurated a new Consortium in American Indian Studies. NCAIS began accepting members in the summer and launched the programs in July 2009. The Consortium draws on the Newberry’s world-renowned collections in American Indian and indigenous studies and the resources of the McNickle Center to offer annual workshops, institutes, conferences, and fellowships to graduate students and faculty at member institutions. Membership in the Consortium will be limited to 20 institutions and is being offered to universities in the United States and Canada. The Consortium draws on the Newberry’s world-renowned collections in American Indian and indigenous studies and the resources of the McNickle Center to offer programs such as institutes, conferences, and annual workshops, as well as provide fellowships to graduate students and faculty at member institutions.
