NAIITS’ academic degrees offer open-ended opportunities for the global Indigenous community to be part of a flexible program of learning.

NAIITS symposiums are themselves learning communities, unique in their blend of academic and practitioner teaching.

NAIITS has carefully selected partners who are clearly Jesus-focused in their worldview and mission, and who respect Indigenous leadership.

We invite you to participate with Indigenous leaders from around the world and become part of a diverse group of highly dedicated visionaries.

NAIITS News from Australia

The partnership of NAIITS and the University of Divinity (UD) is transitioning!

After nearly six years of a mutually beneficial partnership delivering post-graduate theological education with Indigenous Australians, each is now heading in different directions – NAIITS to a new set of opportunities for expanded program delivery, and the UD to focus on its new School of Indigenous Studies (SIS).

Pathways for Tomorrow Grant Builds on NAIITS’ Strengths!

Indigenous Pathways US receives $5 Million grant from Lilly Endowment Inc. through its Pathways for Tomorrow Initiative. Indigenous Pathways US (IP) is grateful to Lilly Endowment for this opportunity. This second grant, which Lilly Endowment made through Phase 3 of its Pathways for Tomorrow Initiative, situates NAIITS, the educational member of Indigenous Pathways, as the lead in a multi-school project to increase theological educational capacity.
