A Home Away From Home 

The First Nations Educational & Cultural Center (FNECC) supports American Indian and indigenous students in their transition to and achievement at Indiana University Bloomington with campus programs and an extended network of resources and information designed to inspire, encourage, and empower students for success.

An Inviting Space

We strives to improve college access, persistence, and completion for Native American students, while helping them become life-long learners and responsible leaders in a global society.

The Center is a good place to socialize and connect with the Native community at IU. I like that it is very open and welcoming to people from all backgrounds and people who want to learn more about Native culture.
