Information on Mining and Environmental Educational Modules for Tribal Colleges

Tribal Educational Module Project

The University of Arizona (UA) Superfund Research Program is developing educational modules for tribal colleges focusing on mining and its environmental and social impacts on tribal lands. These educational modules are independently packaged units of study designed to enhance the learning process. The modules have been designed to incorporate tribal case studies as well as examples of how these social and environmental impacts can be mitigated.

Topics being developed include Copper Mining & Processing, Reclamation & Remediation, Environmental Impacts, Sociocultural Impacts, Uranium, and Tribal Consultation.
