School Overview

Southwestern Indian Polytechnic Institute (abbreviated SIPI) is a two-year community college in Alburquerque, New Mexico that is funded and operated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), an agency of the U.S. federal government. The student body at SIPI is represented by more than 120 Native American indian tribes.

SIPI was established in 1971 in order to prepare Native American Indians to effectively integrate in a modern society and obtain good jobs through advanced training and higher education, and to help students develop the skills necessary to help establish strong Native American communities. In short, the institute was conceived to as a means to serve the Native American Community.

Southwestern Indian Polytechnic Institute is a land grant institution and was regionally accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (up until 2010). It has articulation agreements with several four-year colleges and universities, inside and outside of New Mexico, that ensure its quality students will be admitted upon graduation. Specifically, SIPI has established a special relationship with New Mexico State University, University of New Mexico, and New Mexico Highlands University that ensure its students receive special consideration with respect to recruitment, retention and admittance.
