The University of Redlands seeks to provide a safe, supportive environment for Native students so they may receive individual attention and a high-quality education while enjoying a campus community rich in opportunities.

Native Student Program Brochure

On behalf of the Native American community and our friends and allies, we invite you to explore the University of Redlands. The generous support of the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians has made it possible for the University to provide a level of support and instruction for promising young Native American students unmatched by other colleges and universities in the Inland Empire.
