Leadership & Advisory Circle

In 2020, Provost Teresa Abi-Nader Dahlberg appointed Scott Langston, religion instructor and leader of Native American programs at TCU, to a newly created three-year position as liaison for Native American Nations and Communities.

Dr. Langston established an advisory circle comprising Native Americans from within and outside of the university. This group will help guide TCU on positive ways to make Native Americans feel seen, respected, supported and part of the campus community by:

  • Developing partnerships between TCU and Native American nations and communities
  • Educating our campus regarding Native American history and perspectives
  • Reaching out to Native American communities about TCU
  • Helping guide curriculum with courses and programs reflecting Native American perspectives
  • Imagining new spaces to support Native American students, faculty, staff and alumni
