COVID-19 Policy & Aid

The COVID-19 pandemic has altered the Tribal Colleges and Universities and the students in their communities.

The ongoing global pandemic continues to alter the lives of TCU students, Tribal Colleges and Universities, and Tribal communities with short-term, long-term, and permanent impacts. As TCUs continue to respond to the unique needs of their Tribal communities, AIHEC commits to supporting the TCUs during and beyond the global pandemic with specific COVID-19 policy and advocacy.
