The Center for American Indians at Bacone College’s mission is to be known as the place that Prepares American Indian Leaders. Bacone College’s historic commitment to serving American Indian students within a diverse setting that also honors and encourages the practice of American Indian beliefs and traditions sets Bacone apart from other institutions of higher education. The CAI goal is to have at least 51% of Bacone’s student body be American Indian, and as of July 2020, it has reached 67%. All CAI programs, events and service are provided to ensure the mission and goal becomes reality.
