Beyond just the opportunity to share knowledge with other institutions, Fort Lewis College came away from the summit with one of 11 $10,000 grants, thanks to the Lumina Foundation.

As a Native American-Serving, Nontribal Institution with a significant Latinx population and advanced teaching and research facilities housed within a new $35 million building, Fort Lewis College is well suited to help the National Science Foundation reach its research and diversity goals.
Students earning their master’s degree at Fort Lewis College can either earn the TESOL or Colorado’s Culturally and Linguistically Diverse endorsement. FLC is the only Colorado school and one of only four New Mexico institutions to offer the TESOL.
