The Native American Academic Student Success Center (NAASSC) is focused on creating a sense of belonging for Native American students in a culturally appropriate way. Our community includes students, staff, faculty and alumni from a wide variety of tribal backgrounds, experiences and academic interests.

At the center, you can connect with UC Davis resources that enhance your academic success, learn about culturally relevant activities and create a support network with other students who identify as Native American.

We look forward to welcoming you.
