|Linda Neuerburg promoted to AISS assistant director position|
Linda Neuerburg has been promoted to the position of assistant director of American Indian Student Services. She will assist Leigh Jeanotte, longtime director of AISS, in administering the many exciting and unique programs provided and coordinated through the office, including student support services and retention program activities, culturally sensitive advisement to the UND administration, involvement with the tribes of the region, and professional development with American Indian educators and alumni locally and nationwide.
Neuerburg, a member of the White Earth Band of Chippewa, has worked for the University for 12 years and has been with American Indian Student Services since 1998, serving as a program coordinator and fundraiser. She promotes and assists with student success, coordinates American Indian alumni receptions for the National Indian Education Association (NIEA), and serves on the American Indian Program Council, as well as UND Staff Senate. She was also primarily responsible for raising matching funds that went directly to the construction of the new American Indian Center on campus.
In other news, Dr. Neuerburg was recently appointed by Bishop Michael Hoeppner to the newly formed Native American Commission for the Diocese of Crookston, Minn., to encourage the inclusion of Native American culture in the Catholic masses being offered in Native communities.
