Vision & Mission



The Native American Program will provide leadership for Dartmouth as it works to fulfill its founding mission to educate Native students.  A nationally recognized program, we will work in partnership with Dartmouth and tribal communities to educate and empower Native students to be capable of addressing the social, political and economic needs of Native peoples.



The Native American Program collaborates with Dartmouth’s faculty and staff, as well as tribal communities, to assist Native students in their personal, social, intellectual and ethical development so they can become life-long learners and responsible leaders in our global society.  We complete our work with high regard for the unique cultural experiences and perspectives of Native peoples.


  • We support institutional recognition of Native forms of knowledge and work to help students, faculty and staff understand the ways Native forms of knowledge can interact with academia.

  • We assist students in building their scholarly and leadership capacity by affirming and strengthening the forms of leadership Native students provide to Dartmouth, tribal communities and the world.

  • We strive to make Dartmouth a respectful and welcoming environment where all cultural identities are celebrated.
