Partnerships[edit]

RLNC is a member of the American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC), which is a community of tribally and federally chartered institutions working to strengthen tribal nations and make a lasting difference in the lives of American Indians and Alaska Natives. RLNC was created in response to the higher education needs of American Indians. RLNC generally serves geographically isolated populations that have no other means accessing education beyond the high school level.[1]
