The Saginaw Chippewa Tribal College (SCTC), a 1994 Land-Grant, two-year public college founded in 1998, is pleased to announce the completion of renovations and establishment of a new campus location in Mt, Pleasant, MI.


This strategic move allows SCTC to extend its unique partnership between the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe and the local community by equipping students with the skills needed to be transformational leaders in their tribal community. Additionally, keeping Covid19 in mind, the newly renovated building offers increased open space to ensure safe social distancing capabilities.


The transition to the new campus will be celebrated with a ribbon cutting ceremony followed by an open house on Friday, March 1, 2024 from 10am – 2pm inside the entrance of the campus building at 5805 E. Pickard St. Mt Pleasant, MI. Please join us to learn more about the renovations from the General Contractor, Spence Brothers, and hear remarks in regards to the strong focus on stability and preparing for future growth from the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribal Council Sub-Chief, Luke Sprague, and Tribal College President, Carla Sineway. Staff will also be present to answer any questions and to give tours immediately following the ribbon cutting ceremony.


The Saginaw Chippewa Tribal College is a public community college located in Mount Pleasant, Michigan. In 1998, the Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Council adopted a resolution establishing a tribally controlled college and forming a governing Board of Regents. While the primary focus was to build a bridge between tribal members and higher education, the college was chartered as a public institution for all people in the community. In passing their resolution to establish the college, the Tribal Council sought to increase access to higher education and to expand educational and career opportunities for the tribal community. The Tribal Council also was taking responsibility to provide for the future of the tribe by investing in its most valuable resource, its members and employees. The establishment of Saginaw Chippewa Tribal College was an important step in an educational empowerment process that seeks to preserve and maintain the Saginaw Chippewa tribal culture. The college strives to provide a quality learning experience and environment designed to sustain the cultural continuity of the Tribe from past to future generations.
