The American Indian College Fund has created an online research repository to further understanding about Native higher education, tribal colleges and universities, and American Indian and Alaska Native students. The repository, located on the College Fund’s web site, provides researchers and the general public access to research the work that the College Fund and others do to support Native student success.

This valuable resource on TCU education and Native communities includes literature reviews, annotated bibliographies, and fact sheets on selected topics. It also provides access to dissertations produced by faculty fellows supported by the College Fund’s Mellon Career Enhancement Fellowship program, historical documents the College Fund has produced over the years, and links to white papers and research conducted by other organizations pertinent to the Native higher education community and student success, including the American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC) , National College Access Network (NCAN), Penn Graduate School of Education’s Penn Center for Minority Serving Institutions (CSMI), Gallup, the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC), and many more.

The repository includes four categories of research: student impact, faculty impact, institutional impact, and community impact. Access to research materials are free and open to the public on the College Fund’s website at

If you are aware of research in these four categories that you believe should be linked to this body of work in the research repository, please contact David Sanders, Vice President, Research, Evaluation and Faculty Development, at 303-426-8900 or
