Lawrence University’s Appleton and Door County campuses are located on the ancestral homelands of the Menominee Nation. Currently there are 11 federally recognized Native American sovereign nations in Wisconsin.  We acknowledge these indigenous communities who have stewarded this land throughout the generations and pay respect to their elders past and present. 

Note: many of the following sessions are audiovisually recorded. If you do not wish to be audiovisually recorded you can attend sessions camera off with no image, and participate in the question & answer periods by typing in the chat function.
