In Honor of Dr. Betty Parent

When Betty Parent, PhD became the first full professor in American Indian Studies at San Francisco State University, she established a precedent of excellence in teaching, research, and community service that many American Indians seek to emulate.

The Betty Parent Achievement Award is being created in her name, and with her permission, to recognize Dr. Parent’s achievement and on-going inspiration. The Award will honor outstanding students making similar strides in their academic progress and service to American Indian communities.
