The Native American SUNY: Western Consortium is one of two consortia created by the State University of New York (SUNY) to address the higher education needs of Native American students and communities. The Western Consortium, based at Fredonia, is a regional network of Native American communities and students as well as college campuses in central and western New York. Through our cooperative network, we seek to insure that Native American students graduate from colleges and universities.

The Consortium provides assistance and financial support for campus/ community events related to the recruitment, retention, and graduation of Native American students. Such events may include socials, exhibits, speakers, and workshops.

Scope of Service

The Western Consortium is located on the Fredonia campus and serves all Native American students who reside in or attend a college or university in our region, which is west of Syracuse, NY. All requests for funding are reviewed in the context of Western Consortium goals and objectives.
