Native American Cultural Center
The American Indian, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian Program (AIANNHP)/Native American Cultural Center (NACC) serves a diverse and under-represented student population. The primary mission of the Program/Center is to meet the needs of the students by recognizing the variables that exist within the Native community, and creating programs that assist them to successfully address the factors that influence degree progress and completion. The Program/Center staff understands that difficulties in this process may arise at any level from the first year through the graduate/professional school experience.
The AIANNHP/NACC works to significantly reduce the cultural and educational barriers Native undergraduate and graduate students may encounter in transitioning from their other university experience to the rigors of attending a premiere research institution.
