  • Tutoring in a wide range of classes.

The Native American Center’s mission is to promote the academic success and personal development of Native American students as well as advance cultural appreciation on the Fort Lewis College campus and within the Four Corners community.

The Native American Center provides a supportive environment to Native American students faced with the challenges of education within a multicultural society. The academic and personal development of Native American students is addressed through individual advising and counseling as well as group workshops.

Faculty members from various college departments hold office hours at the Native American Center to provide academic assistance to students. Computers are available to assist students in research or paper writing. Many Native American student clubs and organizations also convene at the Native American Center to host social, cultural, and academic events as well as their regular meetings. These student organizations serve to promote cultural appreciation within the Fort Lewis College community, as well as provide social support to the students.

The Native American Center is a gathering place where Native American students from all over can explore their own and other Native American cultures.
