Dine College is a comprehensive two year community college serving the Navaho Nation. Dine was the first tribally owned community college to receive accreditation for its Tsaile, Arizona campus in 1968. Since then, the college has expanded to six different locations and now they have campuses serving both the residents of New Mexico and Arizona with their locations in Crowpoint, Shiprock, Window Rock, Tuba City and Chinle.
Although many years have passed since the college has been in operation, the institution still lives by their Navajo philosophy of “Sa'ah Naaghai Bik'eh Hozhoo”, which translates to mean the understanding of all living systems. This principle reflects in the education received at Dine College and is evident in all the academic programs and disciplines taught. The institution believes in providing quality education, while staying in connection with the Navajo sensibilities and values of years past.
At Dine College, the institution seeks to provide their students with an educational experience that will turn them into well-rounded professionals. They do this through providing students with various associate degree programs, Dine Language and studies, On-site outreach programs, developmental studies and transfer programs that can be transferred to a four year senior college.
With a diverse student population, Dine College welcomes students far and wide and as such, feel free to visit their website at http://www.dinecollege.edu to learn what the future at Dine holds for you.
