Fort Peck Community College is one of the seven tribal community colleges in the state. The college is located on the Fort Peck Assiniboine & Sioux Reservation in Northeast Montana. FPCC was chartered by the Fort Peck Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes in 1978. The decision to found FPCC was based on the reservation's need to provide opportunities for post-secondary education and community service in their home communities. FPCC offers 25 associate degree and vocational programs for local residents and businesses. FPCC is a two-year degree-granting community college that offers programs to meet the career goals of its students and the training needs of the reservation. To meet the unique educational needs of Indian people, Fort Peck Community College believes that the opportunity for higher education must be provided on the reservation. Since many of the people choose not to leave their homeland, it is necessary that education be brought to them. FPCC is committed to preserving Indian culture, history, and beliefs, and to perpetuating them among the Indian people of all ages. FPCC promotes self-awareness through education necessary to build a career, a lifestyle, and to achieve a true sense of self-pride. Although FPCC does not deny anyone the opportunity for higher education, the institution’s primary purpose is to serve the American Indian population of the Fort Peck Reservation. Montana Campus Compact (MTCC) serves as the intermediary for this project. MTCC is a CEO-led coalitio
