AIHEC has grown to 36 Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs) with more than 75 sites in the United States. Each of these institutions was created and chartered by its own tribal government for a specific purpose: to provide higher education opportunities to American Indians through programs that are locally and culturally based, holistic, and supportive.
