Native Colleges and Universities

Native Colleges and Universities

Not many people know, but there are actually Native American colleges and universities that provide great educational opportunities. Native culture and language are essential components of a Native student’s education, and even though each of the 40 or so colleges (32 are fully accredited) educate on not only broad topics, but Native languages, history, culture, and more. Altogether, there are over 30,000 students enrolled in the Native postsecondary education schools. These schools, as well as the American Indian Higher Education Consortium, are dedicated to strengthen tribal nations and make a difference in the lives of Alaska Natives and American Indians. These programs and schools were created to help geographically isolated populations have access to higher levels of education beyond high school and combine personal attention with cultural relevance.
