Tribal colleges and universities (TCUs) have always been valued partners in community efforts to address pressing social, educational, and economic issues. Most of these institutions of higher education serve remote regions and a growing number of local residents have come to depend heavily on TCU-sponsored education, counseling, health, and economic development initiatives. In support of their efforts to address these growing demands, OUP awards grants through its Tribal Colleges and Universities Program (TCUP) to TCUs to expand, renovate, and equip their own facilities.
