The major components of the Center's educational project are:
  • The creation and presentation of a university-level multidisciplinary curriculum focused on the stucy of indigenous peoples; 
  • The publication of the Fourth World Bulletin, a journal on indigenous politics with a global concentration;
  • The development of university textbooks for the study of indigenous politics; the presentation of public forums;
  • The presentation of testimony before international legal organizations.
Beyond its unique curriculum development work at CU-Denver, the Center's educational mission has been to construct a national and internationcuseal forum for analysis of law and government policies that affect indigenous peoples in every part of the world. Therefore, the Center focuses heavily upon the evolution of legal institutions that are being created for the recognition and protection of indigenous peoples, especially the evolving United Nations Draft Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
