NWIC Mission
Through education, Northwest Indian College promotes indigenous self-determination and knowledge.

The educational philosophy of Northwest Indian College is based upon the belief that the opportunity of post-secondary education must be provided within the Native American community. Northwest Indian College is committed to the belief that self-awareness is the foundation necessary to achieve confidence, esteem, and a true sense of pride; to build a career; to create a self-sufficient life-style; and to promote life-long learning. It is also committed to the belief that a self-awareness program must include a study of Native American culture, values and history.
