Introduction

Oglala Lakota College (OLC) identified the following Community purposes:

  • Supports local communities in educational and other development
  • Engages people as active, productive members of their tiospaye and communities
  • Offers frameworks for leadership development in the context of communities and organizations
  • Provides lifelong learning through continuing education and community activities

OLC’s continuing education plays a key role in this community outreach. Continuing education refers to learning experiences that are connected neither to a specific degree nor academic credit course but that provide participants with continuing education in a particular field. Examples are professional training, post-graduate experiences, Lakota culture, physical education, in-service training, and conferences. Participants earn continuing education credits (CEUs) instead of academic credit.

Pursuant to the Tribally Controlled Colleges and Universities Assistance Act, OLC follows the criteria identified by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) in determining which activities allow for award of CEUs (see Policy 78-200).

Vision

Rebuilding the Lakota Nation through education

Mission

To provide community members brief learning experiences that are relevant to their personal and professional lives.
