Sage Phillips
Program Coordinator - Community Engagement
Penobscot Nation

Sage was raised in Wabanaki Territory with the understanding that education and knowledge are powerful tools that guide her community forward. As such, she has dedicated the majority of her time to learning about and advocating for equitable solutions for access to higher education for future generations. Based on her experiences as a Native student, Sage is determined to provide the next generation of Indigenous students with opportunities for practicing culture and achieving success. She is a strong believer that Indigenous sovereignty begins with education for our communities and their allies and brings this perspective to her role with the Community Engagement Program. In her free time, you can find her enjoying the outdoors via running, skiing, or a long walk, or FaceTiming her family dogs Summit and Timber, who reside back home.
