College of Menominee Nation Signs MOA with Menominee Indian Tribe


In April, the College of Menominee Nation and the Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA). The purpose of this agreement is for the tribe and the College to collaborate to meet the needs of the Menominee community. With respect to both mental health and substance abuse, this MOA will serve to provide opportunities for the College’s Substance Abuse Counselor students striving to provide resources to assist the Menominee community in being healthy.


The Menominee Indian Tribe will pay the last two semesters for students in the Substance Abuse Counselor program, provide paid internships with Maehnowesekiyah Wellness Center for students, and will assist students with the certification process and obtaining permanent employment in the Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse (AODA) field. The College will provide accredited instruction leading students to receiving an Associate of Applied Science degree in Substance Abuse Counselor while also actively recruiting students to the program with collaboration of the tribe, Menominee community, and surrounding communities.


The Substance Abuse Counselor program has been at the College since the fall of 2018. Students in the program are provided with thorough counseling techniques that are specific for substance abuse services. Upon completion of the program, graduates will be able to determine a client’s eligibility to services, consult with professionals, administer developmental appropriate substance abuse assessments, formulate treatment plans, implement evidence-based, culturally sensitive counseling techniques, and more.


The College of Menominee Nation is an accredited tribal college with 19 programs of study, ranging from technical diplomas to baccalaureate degrees, and is open to all.
