At Dartmouth, Bruce Duthu majored in religion and earned a certificate in Native American studies. Since then, he has devoted much of his life to giving back to the program that inspired his career. Duthu is the only Native scholar who holds an endowed professorship in the Ivy League.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"His support and friendship—as director of the Native American Program, a professor, and now as director of the Native American Studies Program—has been vital to the persistence and success of hundreds of Native students who have gone on to contribute significantly to our tribes in various professions and across Indian Country." -Alvin Warren '91, Dubin Fellow with Harvard University's Center for Public Leadership; former lieutenant governor of Santa Clara Pueblo and cabinet secretary of Indian Affairs for the State of New Mexico
IN HIS OWN WORDS
On teaching at Dartmouth: "Working with students—being able to teach a course—was very, very addictive in a very good way. I just knew that this was going to be something that I was going to enjoy doing for a long time."
