Our students earn hands on experience with cutting edge technology for professional integration by qualified faculty. NTU students do not simply learn, they design, create and empower through our state of the art mentorship, internships and projects. Students are encouraged to "teach and learn" between each other in a way that enhances our curriculum. Before completion of a certificate or degree, our students are empowered with diverse experiences that distinguish them in the professional world. Our unique formula of learning tools available on campus propel them in a rapidly changing word of digital technology. This learning environment is proven effective as we have the highest retention in graduation rates amongst any other tribal college or university.

Our university is safe and open to the public. Although we are located on the Navajo Nation we host students and innovators from all over the world.
