Oglala Lakota College is an institution of higher education chartered by Oglala Sioux Tribe to coordinate all higher education on the Pine Ridge Reservation. Its mission is to offer a wide range of educational opportunities from community service offerings to certificates, to undergraduate degrees. The ultimate goal is the establishment of a Lakota University.

As a result of having a college on the reservation; Lakota people are now employed in teaching, nursing, human services, business, computer, and vocational educational positions on the Pine Ridge reservation.

Oglala Lakota College was one of the first tribally controlled colleges in the United States. The concept of a tribally controlled college is that it be sanctioned by an Indian tribe, it’s governed by an Indian tribe, it’s governing body be made up of tribal members; and meet the needs of reservation people in their pursuit of higher education.

From its initial status as a community college, Oglala Lakota has grown to now offer Baccalaureate degrees and a Master’s degree in Lakota Leadership along with certificates and A.A. degrees. This last semester we saw a large increase in enrollment from 1,100-1,400 students to1,400 students with a full-time equivalency of 900 students per semester.
