Poupart speaks to WBAY on first-ever UW-Green Bay doctorate

UW-Green Bay announces it is accepting applications for the first-ever doctorate program in education. WBAY spoke with program director, UW-Green Bay Prof. Lisa Poupart. The degree is specific to indigenous communities of northeast Wisconsin.

“We really have a responsibility to give back to tribal communities, and I think that was one of the driving forces behind creating the first doctoral program in First Nations Education,” said Lisa Poupart, Ph.D, Associate Professor at UW-Green Bay.

There are a number of tribal communities located within an hour’s drive of UW-Green Bay, such as the Oneida Nation and Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin. This program integrates professional fields like education, social work, and healthcare— with tribal culture.
