About Us

The Native American Student Center (NASC) at the University of Idaho empowers Native American students by meeting their academic, social and cultural needs as they navigate the college experience. The NASC serves as a supportive foundation for students to help ease the transition from home to campus life.

The NASC fosters community and growth among Native American students through mentoring, uncovering leadership qualities and inspiring cultural values that are vital to our Native identity.

The center serves as a vital link between Native American students, the university and tribal communities, working to develop sensitivity and appreciation for Native American culture among non-Indian students, faculty and staff. The Native American Student Center believes in assisting the University of Idaho community in creating a culturally diverse and sensitive campus by advocating student centered support programs, cultural events, tools for personal growth experiences, as well as critical thinking skills.
