Welcome from the many tribal nations represented at the Native American Educational and Cultural Center! The NAECC is home to Native American, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian students, faculty, and staff representing over 45 tribal nations at Purdue. Established in 2007 through student and campus advocacy, the NAECC provides educational opportunities for the West Lafayette campus and greater Lafayette community to learn about Indigenous cultures. The NAECC is instrumental in nurturing student learning and success as they reach their academic goals.

NAECC means family. A place to go to relax, socialize and have fun as well as an opportunity to discuss daily stress, get support, whether academic or otherwise.
