The tribal management program provides entry-level management skills for positions in tribal institutions, local government and other organizations in rural Alaska. There is a direct relationship between the program standards and the expected job-related skills and knowledge that the student will need. Students perform specific tasks, understand basic management rationale, and explain issues in tribal government. Student progress is tracked using an individual educational plan (IEP) and student career portfolio. The IEP is a critical guide to student progress and process of education in rural-based learning environment. The student career portfolio is a statement which demonstrates the achievement of specific goal related skills and competencies as well as the individual accomplishments. The student career portfolio is developed to meet program standards (a copy of the standards are available on request).

Prior to enrollment in any tribal management course, students should be familiar with word processing, spreadsheets, database and the Internet. Each student, with the help of a faculty advisor, is required to organize a personal support team to include a tribal leader or community mentor. Students entering either the A.A.S. degree or certificate program should meet with a faculty advisor to discuss program content, requirements and plan.
