Diversity at the UW

Co-Sponsorship Request for Academic Events


The goal of the IHAPC is to foster a space where faculty, students, staff, and community members working on Indigenous-focused research may strengthen their relationships by sharing, learning about, and collaborating on projects taking place across the UW campus and region. In acknowledgement of tribal intellectual traditions, as well as emerging knowledge in Native communities and academia today, our committee aims to honor and actively nurture these knowledge through building relations within and outside the academy.

The Intellectual House Academic Programming Committee (IHAPC) invites University of Washington departments and units, as well as individuals or community organizations, to request co-sponsorships and contributing funds for academic activities held at wǝɫǝbʔaltxʷ.

IHAPC was established to set a yearly intellectual theme for wǝɫǝbʔaltxʷ and solicit programming on issues of continuing importance to the Native people of the Pacific Northwest and beyond. More than a building, wǝɫǝbʔaltxʷ will come to define itself on campus and in the region through the relationships it fosters and that sustain it.

The IHAPC seeks to co-sponsor symposia, lectures, readings, conferences, seminars, shows, demonstrations, research clusters, and meetings that fulfill the Intellectual House’s academic mission and that showcase Indigenous knowledge and intellectual thought within and outside the academy.
