You may have noticed some recent upgrades and changes in both the print and online editions of Tribal College Journal. As noted in the last issue, TCJ has updated its design. Aiming for a more modern and uncluttered look, we intend to keep the focus on the in-depth analysis and thoughtful reporting you’ve come to expect.

Additionally, by introducing a new department, “TCJ Student,” we will bring you some of the best tribal college student creative writing and art in every issue. This will be in addition to the popular fall student issue we publish annually and our recently launched online webzine, We have also picked up and dusted off our former “Research” department. You will now see it re-appearing periodically in our pages, bringing you accessible, cutting edge research on topics of interest to the TCU aficionado. And, as you may have seen from time to time, we have added an “In Memoriam” department. Although it is impossible to honor everyone who has made contributions to the tribal college movement, we endeavor to recognize some who we have lost and who have made a great impact.

You can continue to find up-to-date tribal college news and thought-provoking opinion pieces on our website as well. Additional online photos, videos, and information often augment our print features. If you take a keen interest in a particular issue’s theme, you can also access our online Resource Guide. If you are looking for a new career, our online job board is teaming with open positions in a variety of fields at tribal colleges and beyond. No time to visit the website? If you send us your email address we can forward you our free e-newsletter, which includes links to recent news, job openings, and upcoming events.

TCJ endeavors to include timely information for all of our audience while focusing on the tribal colleges. And although we continue to evolve to meet your changing needs, we also strive to stay true to our core mission, which is to provide information for everyone interested in American Indian higher education by addressing subjects important to the future of our Native communities.

In the coming months we plan to conduct some reader research to help us determine how to best serve you. If you receive a survey through your email or in your mail box, please help us improve our services by responding. If at any time you have a suggestion, don’t hesitate to contact us by phone at (970) 533-9170, or by email at info@tribalcollegejournal. org, and let us know.
