Two highlights in its brief history include opening ceremonies on Aug. 25, 2006, and the inauguration of Mann as its first president on April 3, 2008.

Aside from its mission of providing a quality education for its students, CATC is working toward membership in the American Indian Higher Education Consortium and eventual accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission.

“Although there is much work to be done, this small college is an exceptional vision consistent with the sovereign status of the Cheyenne and Arapaho people who have always placed a high value upon education,” Mann said.
