Saginaw Chippewa Tribal College is a two-year college located in Mount Pleasant, Michigan. In 1998, the Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Council adopted a resolution establishing a tribally-controlled college and formation of a governing Board of Regents.
In passing their resolution to establish the college, the Tribal Council sought to increase access to higher education for the tribal community and to expand educational and career opportunities. The Tribal Council also was taking responsibility to provide for the future of the tribe by investing in its most valuable resource, its own people.
The establishment of Saginaw Chippewa Tribal College was the first step in an educational empowerment process that is aimed at preserving and maintaining Saginaw Chippewa tribal culture. The college strives to provide a quality learning experience and environment designed to sustain the cultural continuity of the tribe from past to future generations.
