About the College of Menominee Nation


College of Menominee Nation sign

American Indian culture is at the heart of the College of Menominee Nation.


CMN degree programs, research, and student activities are committed to addressing contemporary problems through modern science and methodologies that are informed by ancient knowledge. This is most evident CMN's commitment to sustainable development concepts and practices that draw on resource management philosophies tested over centuries in the great Menominee forest.


Native and non-Native students from many states and visitors from across the world come to CMN to pursue higher learning and to learn the history, systems and strategies of the Menominee and other First Americans.


The College Family


The College is proud to serve American Indian students from the Menominee, Oneida, Chippewa, Ho-Chunk, Navajo, Potawatomi, Mohegan, and dozens of other tribes. CMN welcomes non-Indian students and celebrates a diverse student population at both campuses. For a profile of the College’s people and programs, access our most recent Annual Report.
