Michael Dunaway is a doctoral student in natural resources. After earning his undergraduate degree at Haskell Indian Nations University, he chose to attend Cornell due to the alignment of his academic goals with those of his adviser.

“When I was applying to Cornell, Dr. Kassam said to me, “Indigenous communities have had enough mediocrity. They deserve our very best, our excellence. And, so, I will demand excellence of you.” And, at that moment I knew there was no other program for me.”
