Nebraska Indian Community College (NICC) offers associate degrees to a multi-campus structure for two rural reservations located on the Omaha Reservation at Macy, Nebraska, and on the Santee Sioux Reservation in Santee, Nebraska. The College maintains a campus in South Sioux City, Nebraska, along with ventures into distance learning which presents unique opportunities for individualized attention while separated by hundreds of miles. Nebraska Indian Community College is dedicated to bringing state-of-the-art facilities and programs to encourage students to take advantage of a quality, culturally-based education.
Nebraska Indian Community College offers associate degrees in Business Administration, Carpentry, Early Childhood Education, General Liberal Arts, Human Services, Native American Studies, and General Science Studies. The College has had a substantial impact by making a variety of cultural, educational, and social resources available in isolated and economically underdeveloped areas. Libraries at each campus are developing collections of resources important to the history and culture of each tribe and the nation.
In 1981, the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools approved the college for accreditation at the associate degree granting level. The institution was granted a charter by each of the three Nebraska Indian Tribes. In 1994, NICC was designated by federal legislation as a land grant institution.
