The mission of Salish Kootenai College is to provide quality postsecondary educational opportunities for Native Americans, locally and from throughout the United States. The College will promote community and individual development and perpetuate the cultures of the Confederated Tribes of the Flathead Nation.
The vision of Salish Kootenai College is to foster curricula and vocational certification, and associates and bachelors degree programs that meet the unique needs of the Native American population. While the college encourages diversity, its primary purpose is to serve the needs of Native American People.
The following four themes collectively represent the essential elements of the SKC Mission:
1. Provide Access to Higher Education for American Indians
2. Maintain Quality Education for Workforce or Further Education
3. Perpetuate the Cultures of Confederated Salish and Kootenai Peoples
4. Increase Individual and Community Capacity for Self Reliance and Sustainability
