The College Fund launched the Tribal College and University Research Journal (TCURJ) in 2016 to support TCU faculty in disseminating their research to Indigenous communities and the wider research community. The journal publishes articles from a variety of fields such as environmental science, Indigenous health and wellness, student success, and tribal college program development. The Henry Luce Foundation has provided generous support of the journal since 2018.
