“We are excited to have Dr. Pewewardy on campus again,” says Dr. Von Underwood, Dean of the CU School of Arts and Sciences. “As a native Lawtonian, he knows a great deal about our region, our students, and our university - in addition having a national perspective on many issues. His visit will contribute to better understanding of Native American culture and help our students, faculty, and staff to work together for student success and for new, positive partnerships for Southwest Oklahoma. I look forward to hearing him speak and perform.”
