Welcome to the Native American Enrichment Center!
Mission Statement: The Native American Enrichment Center fosters the learning of all Great Falls College MSU students with a focus on Native American student success, offering a quiet, distraction-free area for studying.
Great Falls College MSU is located in the heart of Montana’s Tribal Nations and is surrounded by many reservations and state tribes including: Assiniboine, Blackfeet, Chippewa Cree, Crow, Gros Ventre, Kootenai, Little Shell Chippewa, Northern Cheyenne, Pend d'Oreille, Salish, and Sioux.
Many of the college’s students are from these tribes and Great Falls College MSU is strongly committed to seeing all American Indians students succeed by providing academic support and services to improve American Indian retention, persistence, and degree completion. Our campus community proudly embraces the Native American culture, heritage, values and beliefs.
As an American Indian student embarking on an academic career there may be obstacles and barriers on the road to reaching your educational goals. Regardless if you are a traditional or non-traditional student there are challenges and often times one does not know where to turn. We are here to provide a supportive campus community and to help students identify campus resources, establish relationships with faculty and staff, and to model effective study strategies for success. We provide academic support, advocacy, and leadership for all Native students.
Did you know that there is a Native American Enrichment Center (NAEC) where students can gather, study, get free tutoring, and meet new people?
The NAEC is located in B 116. The NAEC offers 2 office spaces (B 115 & B 117) which are designated for studying purposes. The larger room across the hall is a great gathering space with comfortable seating, table and chairs, refrigerator, and coffee maker. The NAEC offers computer/printing services and provides connections to other campus and community resource.
