About California Indian Nations College


The California Indian Nations College (CINC) will expand the knowledge of indigenous students, develop their leadership potential, and support tribal sovereignty by offering culturally-rooted and relevant curriculum that addresses the needs of tribal communities and ensures the well-being of indigenous peoples. CINC will provide students with support services and specialized programs for the general benefit of American Indian students and other students interested in Native American people, cultures, languages, policies, and tribal sovereignty.


During the Summer of 2015, the Steering Committee of the California Indian Nations College named the institution. CINC will serve as an exemplary institution of higher education that will prepare students to be intellectually and culturally grounded. CINC will empower students and their communities to preserve, protect, and foster tribal sovereignty and sustainable economic development. Students will learn to serve others to the benefit of themselves and their people.
