PEEC is a program to expand theinclusion Native American students into the engineering career field while at the same time openingawareness of the opportunities available in tribal communities for engineering talent. The paper willthen go on to describe how the initial concepts have evolved during the years of operation. The paperwill also describe the serendipitous events relating to resources, administration staff and studentssuccess stories and the implications they have for future successes. The paper will then discuss thelessons to be learned from less than optimal activities and the resulting opportunities in the context ofthe evolving nature of educational responses.
