American Indian/Alaskan Native College Success Stories

As you may know American Indians/Native Alaskans have some of the highest college drop rates in the US. We are trying to understand why this problem continues. Because you graduated from a college/university with an undergraduate degree, you are a success story.

I would be honored if you would consider answering the question below. We are collecting stories, hoping to create a document and book that can be used to understand the issues for American Indians/Native Alaskans remaining in college. We hope to compile and provide these stories for students who are thinking about attending college or currently a student.

Please note: We will seek your full approval before any of your words are provided to the public.

Thank you very much and please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Please send response to

I look forward to hearing from you soon, Peace, DAP
Question: Given the fact that American Indians/Native Alaskans have such a high dropout rate from college, what was the main factor for you staying in college when you were an undergraduate student?
