American Indian Center

The American Indian Center was established in 2006 to promote and support American Indian scholarship and scholars and to incorporate Native American issues into the intellectual life of the university. The state of North Carolina has the largest American Indian population east of the Mississippi River, and Carolina committed itself to expanding its research, educational, and service efforts in this area. The center is a campus home for scholars and students, hosting programs such as the annual Michael D. Green Lecture in American Indian Studies and Elder-in-Residence program. Student engagement is supported through scholastic awards and an ambassadors program, among other initiatives. In addition, the center serves Native communities in North Carolina through a variety of initiatives and programs. Based in Abernethy Hall for many years, the center moved to Wilson Street in 2019.
