A brief description of the institution’s formal designation:

UMM provides a tuition waiver to all eligible Native American students. 21% of the campus population is Native American (2018 data). A quote from the press release link: “It is exciting to be recognized as a Native American-Serving Nontribal Institution, not only because of our student population, but also because it contextualizes our work today framed by our history as an institution," says Hilda Ladner, assistant to the chancellor for equity and diversity and director of equity, diversity, and intercultural programs. "Funding for the NASS program builds on Morris's commitment of service to American Indian students and communities; it allows us to improve and expand programs with proven results and increase the visibility of American Indian peoples and cultures on campus beyond the diverse student body already present."

Please, follow the link below and awards in FY2015 to see UMM on the list of NASNTI-institutions. Only Native American-Serving Nontribal Institution are eligible to obtain grant program funding.
