The American Indian Center is a campus-wide center that will advance the University’s overall mission of research, teaching and public service by creating an environment in which quality research, scholarship, and engagement related to American Indians is strengthened, nurtured and coordinated.
North Carolina is home to one of the largest Native populations in the eastern United States and the center serves as the University’s front door to American Indian communities across the state and the nation.
The Center enables Carolina, as the University of the People and the leading public institution in the United States, to truly serve the First People of North Carolina and become the premier public university in the East for American Indian research, scholarship, public service and knowledge dissemination.
LEARN NC has partnered with the American Indian Center to publish resources to support teaching about North Carolina American Indians.
