Native American Student Programs

The University of Redlands seeks to provide a safe, supportive environment for Native students so they may receive individual attention and a high quality education, while enjoying a campus community rich in opportunities.

Native Student Programs (NSP) addresses higher education retention and access issues as they affect Native American college students, youth, and their families in Southern California and beyond. NSP also seeks to create and sustain a visible and vibrant Native American culture at the University of Redlands, academically connected to the growing Native American Studies program. Participation in NSP is welcome to all students. Events and services include volunteer opportunities, guest speakers, cultural programming, and more.

Native Student Programs is located on the first floor of the Hunsaker University Center.
