The American Indian, Alaskan Native, Hawaiian Native, and Indigenous students make up the smallest population on-campus, encompassing a total of 1% of the student population, which includes graduate students as well. Our Native student community is a tight-knit group that has consistently gone above and beyond. In recent years Native students received the two highest awards offered by the university.
