We welcome the opportunity to tell our story—to share our successes, our challenges, and our goals for the future to advance AIHEC's vision of sovereign nations through excellence in TRIBAL higher education.

We are honored to share these stories of continuous improvement in making a lasting difference in the lives of American Indians and Alaska Natives by strengthening tribal communities through higher education and preserving our culture, tradition, and environment. By reviewing our story, we can learn and move forward to help TCUs address the educational, social, health and economic development needs of their respective tribal communities.
