Ute Mountain Ute puts priority on higher education

The Ute Mountain Ute Tribe of Colorado has hired a higher-education adviser to encourage more tribal members to attend college.

More tribal members are going to college, with 39 currently enrolled at postsecondary institutions. Tribal leaders hope to increase that number with the hiring of Robert Galin as the adviser.

Gallin will encourage tribal members to pursue advanced degrees, prepare them for campus life and help them succeed in college.
