Anitra (Webster) Warrior (2005, 2007, 2015) is returning to the College of Education and Human Sciences on Sept. 30, as part of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Multicultural Homecoming festivities.
Hosted by the Department of Educational Psychology, Warrior will participate in an informational conversation at 10:30 a.m., Sept. 30 in the Collaboratorium in Teachers College Hall. CEHS faculty, staff and students are invited to attend. The event is part of the university’s 2022 homecoming celebration featuring eight distinguished alumni of color returning to campus to share their experiences with their respective colleges and students.
Warrior, a graduate of the counseling psychology program in the Department of Educational Psychology, is a licensed psychologist and owner of Morningstar Counseling. Morningstar Counseling provides mental health services to the community, with a particular focus on serving Native people. It has expanded to nine locations throughout Nebraska and partners with the Santee Sioux Nation and Walthill Public Schools. Warrior attended Little Priest Tribal College in Winnebago, Neb., before earning her bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate from Nebraska. She recently was honored as Woman of the Year at the annual Inspire-Celebrating Women’s Leadership Awards.
To increase connections between multicultural alumni, academic faculty and the current student body, the Chancellor’s Commission on the Status of People of Color, the Jackie Gaughan Multicultural Center and the Nebraska Alumni Association also extend an invitation to all alumni and those in the Husker community to participate in a few special events during the upcoming homecoming weekend.
The week’s events will include a Multicultural Social on Sept. 29 at the Wick Alumni Center. This event is free, but registration is required.
In addition, the Jackie Gaughan Multicultural Center Hall of Fame Luncheon will be held at noon Sept. 30. The hall of fame was created to honor outstanding multicultural alumni who have made a significant impact on students, university and community. The lunch is free, but registration is required.
The Multicultural Homecoming Cocktail Mixer will both take place on Friday evening and is also free. The week’s festivities will conclude with a tailgate before the Huskers face Indiana on Oct. 1.
