Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes present $500,000 grant to tribal college in Weatherford
The $500,000 check was to the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribal College, located on the campus of its partner institution, Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.
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.
Brian Adler is vice president of public relations and marketing for SWOSU.
