Welcome to the Native American Center

The Native American Center (NAC), your home away from home, serves as an academic and resource center for Native American undergraduate students attending Fort Lewis College. As the NAC, we:

  • Provide academic, cultural, social, and transitional support for undergraduate Native American/Alaska Native/Indigenous students;
  • Connect and refer undergraduate students to campus and departmental resources;
  • Develop programming in support of Native American, Alaska Native and Indigenous cultures;
  • Promote an inclusive environment at the NAC that reflects the diversity of our scholars.

Our overall Native American student enrollment averages 1,100 Native students each semester and within that a rich cultural diversity of 160+ tribal nations is represented. Fort Lewis College maintains a federal designation as a Native American-Serving Non-Tribal Institution (NASNTI) as over 10% of our student body is Native American.
