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 in sustainable development programs at CMN that draw on resource management philosophies tested over centuries in the great Menominee forest.


Native and non-native students 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.
