American Indian

With a history rooted in the educational principles planted by the Cherokee people, Northeastern State University has long been a bastion of higher education for American Indians. The university's students represent more than 30 tribes from across the nation, giving NSU the highest enrollment of American Indian students of any public four-year higher education institution in the country.

Northeastern offers many resources and programs to aid our American Indian students in their educational pursuits. From cultural programs like the annual Symposium on the American Indian and the Center for Tribal Studies to on campus living-learning communities to a number of student academic and professional organizations, NSU promotes engagement and a sense of community among our American Indian students.
