College of Muscogee Nation Gets Federal Funding
The College of Muscogee Nation was founded in 2004 to meet the Muscogee (Creek) Nation citizens’ need for quality higher education that would also include tribal culture, language and history. The institution is governed by a board of regents, an independent entity based on the Muscogee (Creek) Nation constitution, legislation and code.
The college awards associate degrees in Gaming, Native American Studies, Police Science and Tribal Services, and offers two certificate programs in Gaming and Mvskoke Language Studies. Its primary source of funding is from the Muscogee (Creek) Nation.
When it was first beginning, the college entered into an agreement with the Oklahoma State University Institute of Technology to increase services to students. As the college develops students still have access to the institute’s facilities, administrative systems and technical support through dual enrollment.
The college is currently working toward becoming an independent institution, and is in candidacy status with the Higher Learning Commission’s North Central region.
