139Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs) are generally small, rural campuses located on or near Native American reservations. They are usually tribally controlled, but serve both Native and non-Native students. The history of TCUs began with the founding of Diné College by the Navajo Nation in 1968. Today there are 37 TCUs, in 14 states, 34 of these are accredited by mainstream accrediting bodies, and have a total enrollment of approximately 28,000 students (Stull et al., 2015). TCUs are unique compared to other higher education institutions in their mission to serve tribal priorities while maintaining and growing tribal culture.
