Welcome to the FNECC

The FNECC is open to everyone regardless of cultural, racial or tribal background. We attempt to create an identity politics 'free zone' where First Nations, Indigenous, and our non-Native allies can come together to pursue building community, academic achievement and cultural preservation.

Mission

The mission of the First Nations Educational and Cultural Center (FNECC) revolves around four central goals:

A slideshow displays here; you need Adobe Flash Player to view it. 1) To build a Native community within the University.
2) To provide educational opportunities that further awareness and recognize contributions of the First Nations people.
3) To enhance the recognition and reputation of Indiana University in American Indian. Alaskan Native, and Native Hawaiian communities.
4) To support and increase Native student recruitment and retention.
