News from the Office of Senator Daines

U.S. SENATE – On Feb. 9, U.S. Senators Steve Daines and Jon Tester led a bipartisan group of colleagues in designating the week beginning Feb. 5 as “National Tribal Colleges and Universities Week,” to highlight the importance of higher education in Indian Country.

“Montana’s Tribal Colleges support, inspire and cultivate the next generation of Montana’s leaders. Just like the Tribes themselves, Tribal Colleges are an integral part of our Montana way of life. I am glad to recognize the work they do to serve Montana students,” said Daines.

“Montana’s Tribal Colleges and Universities provide a top-notch education to Montana’s students and prepare them to make a real impact on the world once they graduate. Education is the great equalizer, and that’s why it’s critically important that we recognize and support the institutions that are shaping the next generation of leaders,” said Tester.

Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs) offer Native American students access to knowledge and skills grounded in cultural traditions and values. Montana is home to seven Tribal Colleges and Universities, the most of any state. These institutions serve thousands of Native and hundreds of non-Native students every year. Across the country, there are 35 Tribal Colleges and Universities operating 90 campuses in 15 states.
