The Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals (ITEP) was created in 1992 to act as a catalyst among tribal governments, research and technical resources at Northern Arizona University (NAU), in support of environmental protection of Native American natural resources.
Our Mission: "ITEP serves tribes through outstanding, culturally-relevant education and training that increase environmental capacity and strengthen sovereignty."
NNWF - Navajo Nation Environmental Workforce Development Program
ITEP will work with the Navajo Nation Environmental Protection Agency and the Navajo Nation Department of Workforce Development to recruit 20 tribal members for each training cycle during years one and two, leading to the education and certification of up to 40 graduates over the first two years of the program.

Tribal Hazardous Substances
ITEP has released its first public version of the Hazardous Substances Website to assist tribes in identifying what hazardous substances may be affecting their communities and seeking feedback on further development. Comments, case studies, tribal-specific documents and topics of interest for further development and population of this website are being solicited from tribal professionals.
