dc.description.abstract I have previously worked with tribal colleges while employed with the American Indian College Fund and reached out to the Pawnee Nation College (PNC) for my community governance project because I knew they had not yet applied for accreditation. While at the Fund, I became aware of the numerous benefits the PNC was missing because of not having received accreditation, which include a strong reputation as a respected higher education institution, scholarships for students, access to financial aid funding for students, and eligibility for many grants and programs for accredited tribal colleges and universities. I had also heard from the community that the college needed support and felt that I could offer my skill set and knowledge, especially after just finishing my coursework in the Indigenous Governance (IGOV) program at the University of Victoria. In this case, community is defined as Pawnee tribal members, students who are members of other tribes and residents of the City of Pawnee who are non-Native. en_US
