About

Research proves that a physical space for Indigenous students is of vital importance. It is crucial to build a sense of community and to provide support services and resources to meet the unique needs of Native students. 

This is what the Native American Education, Research, and Cultural Center and our Native programs housed in the center provide at the University of Wyoming. Please consider supporting the center and our phenomenal Native American students through their college experience.

The Native American Education, Research, and Cultural Center is a place of community, support, engagement, and learning, all while assisting our students in maintaining their cultural identity. Continuous relationship building and outreach is a pivotal aspect of the center. 

The center provides a wide range of opportunities for our Native students at the University of Wyoming, including internships, part-time employment, student organizations such as Keepers of the Fire, leadership opportunities, and more. The facility has a variety of spaces—a computer lab, library, classroom, kitchen, study areas, and a lounge. The center houses the Native American Program advisor and student support services, Native American and Indigenous Studies (NAIS) department, and the High Plains American Indian Research Institute. 

  • The Native American Program advisor and student support provides direct support, student engagement, assistance with scholarships, leadership opportunities, and resources for our Native and Indigenous students across the University of Wyoming. 
  • The Native American and Indigenous Studies department develops respect for and understanding of Native views, culture, and history and provides learners with the Native perspective on contemporary issues. Students in NAIS develop and refine skills in creative and critical thinking and graduate prepared to succeed in any field they choose. 
  • The High Plains American Indian Research Institute is an entity that tribes and scholars can access and utilize for both tribally driven research and for research initiated by UW scholars that pertains to Native American people, their lands, and resources. 

Please consider donating to our exceptional programs! With your support, the center and its services can continue to provide resources for our Native students as they pursue their higher education goals. Thank you!
