The Native American Cultural Center (NACC), as an integral component of the university's diversity initiatives, provides a culturally relevant environment for Native American students, students interested in the Native American cultures and home to the Native Student Services office. 

NACC serves an invaluable resource and where Native cultural articulation and expressions are an everyday experience, like a "home away from home." Many students utilize NACC as a home base from which they learn to integrate into the larger university community, yet be able to retain their cultural independence.
