CC Welcomes Elder-in-Residence Debbie Howell

The college welcomes Debbie Howell (Pawnee/Dakota) to Colorado College as elder-in-residence, a position new to CC.

Howell, who began on Oct. 1, comes to the college with extensive civic engagement experience, having served as co-chair of the Native American Advisory Council with the Emerging Leaders Development Program at El Pomar Foundation, and contributing her knowledge to many Native, women’s, and community committees and causes. Howell’s understanding of eldership in the Native tradition, including Native history, traditions, and practices, will serve her well in her new position, which reflects the college’s mission to support students.
