Nebraska Indian Community College
Nebraska Indian Community College (NICC) is a two-year community tribal college located in Macy, Nebraska, which provides a high level of education, community-focused learning, and cultural preservation to students belonging to the Umonhon (Omaha) and Isanti (Santee Dakota) Nations and other learners. NICC is equipped to play an integral part in MATC’s research, education, and workforce development initiatives. NICC also serves as liaison to other community colleges in Region VII and to tribal colleges throughout the U.S. In 2016, MATC partnered with NICC for the fourth iteration of the MATC Scholars Program, held October 27-28. Several NICC faculty members joined additional guest speakers in leading sessions for Native American undergraduates about transitioning from two-year to four-year institutions.
