The Tribal Museum Studies Certificate Program is an academic program of Northwest Indian College that was developed through the collaborative effort of NWIC, the Burke Museum and the University of Washington Museology Program. The program was initiated with the intent to address the staff training needs for tribal museums throughout our region as new tribal museums are created and as the need for new and replacement staff at existing tribal museums arises. The program consists of three courses on collection care and management, administration, and exhibition and education. Northwest Indian College's third Tribal Museum Studies Program course is currently being taught at the Wing Luke Museum in Seattle's International District.  For more information, contact Nadeen Jimmy at njimmy@nwic.edu or Josh Heim at jheim@wingluke.org.
