The Institute of Native American Studies at the University of Georgia was founded in 2004. UGA INAS is one of the few Native Studies programs in the Southeast and serves as a hub for other similar programs in Georgia. Today, we are a vibrant community of two dozen scholars, including six Native faculty, in addition to our graduate and undergraduate students. Institutes at UGA, just like departments, have three functions: teaching, programming and research. UGA INAS is dedicated to expanding course offerings, programming open to the community, research that benefits native communities, and presenting Native American voices on campus.
