TCU Research Journal
In 2016, the College Fund launched the Tribal College and University Research Journal (TCURJ), the first peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary journal dedicated to research conducted by TCU faculty. Each annual issue of the journal features four to five papers authored by TCU faculty and co-authored by faculty and students from TCUs and mainstream institutions. The research focuses on topics of importance to TCUs and Native nations, and amplifies Indigenous perspectives and research methodologies.
Intensive Writing Retreat to Develop Manuscripts for Publication
The two-day Intensive Writing Retreat provides the time that many TCU faculty need to develop a manuscript from their research. The retreat also provides mentorship and presentations from senior Native and TCU faculty in the development of manuscripts, the journal submission process, Indigenous research methods, and preparing for presentations.
