Native Education Center

Native Education Center logoWelcome to the Native Education Center, where we work to ensure our Native American student population and other traditionally under-served students on campus are provided with the support they need to be successful in college.

Our student center, located in 311 South Hall, provides a comfortable  atmosphere onsite for our students to do homework or just sit and talk. Our center offers everything from providing space for tutoring services and assistance in filling out paperwork to advocacy services and offering support through one-on-one advising to establishing positive connections on campus.

On these web pages, you can find a listing of student services available on campus that can be great resources for you. You can also find out who to talk to about tribal resources, as well as university housing and day care options.

What else can you do here? Check out our Community Calendar. Get information about the North American Waiver Educational Program. Or peruse the lists of reading materials and films (focused on Native issues) available at the Center, at the UMPI Library and through inter-library loan.

We’re committed to the advancement of Native education, student retention, and degree attainment. We’re striving to eliminate education achievement gaps for undergraduate students of color, low-income, and those who are first in their family to go to college. So if you need help and don’t find what you’re looking for here, give us a call or stop by. We’re here to help you!
