ITEPP Alumnus, Paula “Pimm” Allen, was hired in April as a part‐time academic advisor at ITEPP. Pimm brings with her years of experience working with Indian students, communities, and programs most recently at United Indian Health Services. She is active in local ceremonials and is quite knowledgeable on local Indian cultural mores, values, and educational programs. Her in‐depth historical knowledge of Humboldt/ITEPP adds to the strength of the program. Pimm’s grandmother, Violet Tripp, and father, Amos Tripp, were founding ITEPP board members in 1969.

Pimm joins Marlette Grant‐Jackson in providing academic and cultural advising to boost ITEPP student retention and graduation success at Cal Poly Humboldt. Welcome back to ITEPP and Cal Poly Humboldt!
