PFF and Tribal Colleges


Nationwide, there are about 33 colleges that are affiliated with American Indian tribes. These colleges explicitly state in their missions a commitment to serving American Indian students and their communities are commonly referred to as Tribal Colleges. These institutions have played a vital role in providing access and opportunity in higher education for students of American Indian descent.

There were four Tribal Colleges actively involved with PFF. These institutions were important partners in the PFF programs. With their unique missions and campus cultures, the Tribal College partners allowed doctoral students to experience faculty life in an environment very different from the one on their research university campus.

The 4 tribal Colleges that were involved in PFF clusters include:

Institution Location
Keweenaw Bay Ojibwa Community College Michigan
Little Priest Tribal College Nebraska
Northwest Indian College Washington
Southwestern Indian Polytechnic Institute New Mexico
