Join our EWU Tribal Planning Programs at our Riverpoint Campus near downtown Spokane for an exceptional learning opportunity. We will offer two intensive classes, 8:30am-5:30pm Monday through Thursday, including a one-day tour and field research project scheduled on a nearby reservation. “Introduction to American Indian Tribal Planning” offers an overview of the processes and evolution of tribal planning and its practice today. A one-day tour and “charrette” plan project on a nearby reservation is part of the class. “Tribal Transportation Planning” offers an overview of all aspects of tribal transportation planning and transportation programs. There is a one-day tour to a local reservation that includes hands-on application of road inventory techniques.
Lodging is available adjoining the EWU Riverpoint Campus downtown. The class can be taken as a workshop or as a college undergraduate or graduate class for credit.

  • Introduction to American Indian Tribal Planning Workshop - June 23 - 26, 2014 and August 14, 2014
    (August will be offered as both a classroom and a webinar)

    The purpose of this class is to present an introduction, overview, and the basics of tribal planning. The class will describe the history and legal foundations of tribal governments and tribal planning, processes of tribal management and planning including strategic planning, the comprehensive plan, management and budget structures, land use controls, and key aspects of standard planning tools and their application for appropriate tribal planning. Two models for tribal planning exist: one is where tribes use standard Anglo planning techniques as a technical function within their own government, while the second is the development of tribal (or village) specific planning as a unique and dynamic process which uses some of the tools of non-Indian planning but expands those to reframe tribal planning and government. The second model is the basis of tribal planning in this class.
    Syllabus coming soon.
  • Introduction to Tribal Transportation Planning Workshop - July 7 - 10, 2014 and August 15, 2015
    (August will be offered as both a classroom and a webinar)

    This class will provide an introduction to tribal transportation planning and the importance of transportation for overall tribal development. The class will include background information on surface transportation statutes and funding historically to the current “Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) and will include up to date information on Department of Transportation programs including the Tribal Transportation Program’s planning, safety, bridge and construction programs, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Tribal Transit program and other FTA programs available to tribes, and the structure, responsibilities and operation of Tribal Transportation departments and their interface with other departments and jurisdictions in development of a Long Range Transportation Plan and Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). Special attention will be paid to Planning for Safety, Asset Management and Preservation tools including the Road Inventory Field Data System (RIFDS), and related engineering studies, data collection and analysis. Tribal options for implementation and management of tribal transportation programs will be discussed including the BIA direct service, PL93-638 contracting and compacting, Programmatic Agreements with Federal Highway Administration and Bureau of Indian Affairs and basic Federal Transit Administration grant requirements.
    Syllabus coming soon.
