Thanks for the heads up. I see that the Central Washington University Web site describes the screening as closing last March and the position as beginning last month. Do you know if this is an unfilled position that they have re-opened the search for? (I know -- I should call CWU to find out for sure.)
PS I have seen you speak a couple times at national or Cordilleran meetings and have spoken with you once, though I would not expect you to remember! Partly because my community college district includes the Colville Confederated Tribes and Reservation, and partly because of my own interests in how people relate to the earth, some of your work in multi-cultural education has been of particular interest to me.
