Construction in Indian Country® (CIIC) was created with guidance from the Advisor to the Office of the President of Arizona State University for American Indian Affairs and a Committee of individuals from Arizona and New Mexico Indian tribes. They convened to determine to enhance the quality of tribally sponsored or tribal entity sponsored construction projects in construction management occurring on tribal lands. The Committee teamed with the Del E. Webb School of Construction (DEWSC), a program committed to excellence in teaching, research and service in and for the construction industry. Together this group defined construction to include a range of normal to significant aspects of law, business, engineering, architecture, planning, and management.
