Native Student Program

Native Student Program from Syracuse University

History

In collaboration with the Office of Academic Affairs and the Division of Student Affairs, now Enrollment and the Student Experience, the Native Student Program was established in 2006 as a program in the Office of Multicultural Affairs to support the transition to college for members of state and federally-recognized Native American tribes.

Program Objectives

The Native Student Program was created as a resource for members of state- or federally-recognized Native American tribes to support their transition into college. Students participating in the Program or otherwise interested in supporting exploring Native American culture and history gather weekly at 113 Euclid Avenue to attend workshops and gain strategic information that promotes academic success, including academic counseling. To celebrate Native American heritage, the program provides opportunities for students to attend conferences and to remain connected to Native American culture and history, including a trip in the Spring to culminate the Native Identity Series. Past trips have included visits to the Ganondagan State Historical Site in Victor, New York, Kanatsiohareke Mohawk Community in Fonda, New York, and the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, DC.

The Native Student Program also provides students the necessary engagement for growth and success beyond the walls of college through faculty, staff, and peer interaction.

The physical space committed to the Native Student Program at 113 Euclid Avenue will serve as an extension to the home-away-from-home theme that is central to the Office of Multicultural Affairs for its students.
