History of United Tribes And Fort Lincoln


“United Tribes Technical College is dedicated to providing American Indians with postsecondary and technical education in a culturally diverse environment that will provide self-determination and economic development for all tribal nations.”

The campus of United Tribes Technical College (UTTC) is immediately south of the municipal airport at Bismarck, North Dakota. The site is a former military post transformed by the tribes of North Dakota for the purpose of educating and training American Indian students and their families for their economic, social and cultural advancement.

UTTC offers its programs and training on the college’s 230 acre campus along Bismarck’s University Drive, and online through distance education programs. While American Indian students make up the majority of the student body, students of all racial and ethnic backgrounds are welcomed for enrollment and instruction in this culturally diverse setting.

UTTC is a member of numerous postsecondary and technical education organizations and associations, including the National Indian Education Association, American Indian Higher Education Consortium and the North Dakota Association of Tribal Colleges. Its Bachelors, Associate of Applied Science and Certificate programs are accredited through the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

UTTC is recognized as one of the premier tribal colleges in the nation. It provides academic, career and technical education programs and training opportunities, and a full array of college activities, including intercollegiate athletics and wrap-around student support services, all in a close-knit campus/community setting.

Students choose to come here from tribes throughout the region and around the country. By attending and graduating, tens of thousands have been empowered to make a difference in their tribal communities and communities across America.
