SNP is a centre of excellence for Indigenous, community-based post-secondary education.  SNP learners gain knowledge, confidence, and skills to continue studies and participate in the labour market while acquiring Hodinǫhśǫ:nih culture, language, values, and traditions.  SNP has made incredible progress to revitalize and advance Hodinǫhśǫ:nih language and culture, increase academic achievement, retention, and completion rates of learners, and expand programming.  The support of twenty-one education partners and eleven financial contributors makes our continued success possible.
