The tribal management program teaches the job-related skills and knowledge needed for entry-level management positions in tribal institutions, local government and other organizations in rural Alaska. Students perform specific tasks, learn basic management rationale and explore issues in tribal government. Each student has an individual educational plan (IEP), which is a critical means of tracking progress and a key part of the process of education in a rural-based learning environment. A student career portfolio demonstrates individual accomplishments and the achievement of specific goal-related skills and competencies. The student career portfolio is developed to meet program standards. (A copy of the standards is available on request.)

Students entering any tribal management course should be familiar with word processing, spreadsheets, databases 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 planning.
