Tribal Transportation Outreach
The Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute (UGPTI) at North Dakota State University (NDSU) recently renewed a longstanding tribal outreach effort. The effort aims to provide assistance to Native Nations, by providing outreach to facilitate increased accessibility to transportation and advancements in infrastructure and technology, to ultimately enhance tribal livability.
"Collaboration with tribes is an important part of our outreach mission, so we will continue to work in this area and pursue opportunities to expand our work together." – UGPTI Director Denver Tolliver
The Tribal Outreach effort improves safe transportation of people and goods on tribal reservations to enhance livability, community and cultural values through increased accessibility to employment, workforce development opportunities, education, healthcare and housing.
The Tribal Outreach effort will be a leader in facilitating improvements in tribal transportation to enhance livability, community and cultural values for reservation residents.
