PHILOSOPHY
To meet the unique educational needs of Indian people, Fort Peck Community College believes that the opportunity for higher education must be provided on the reservation. Since many of the people choose not to leave their homeland, it is necessary that education be brought to them. FPCC is committed to preserving Indian culture, history, and beliefs, and to perpetuating them among the Indian people of all ages. FPCC promotes self-awareness through education necessary to build a career, a lifestyle, and to achieve a true sense of self-pride. Although FPCC does not deny anyone the opportunity for higher education, the institution’s primary purpose is to serve the American Indian population of the Fort Peck Reservation.

MISSION STATEMENT
The College serves the constituency of the reservation populations by maintaining an occupational training program based on the needs of the people living on and near the reservation and on potential employment opportunities available in the region.

FPCC serves the people of the Fort Peck Reservation and northeastern Montana as a medium of Indian awareness, enabling increased self-awareness.

The College serves the people by initiating and supporting community activities and organizations based on the needs and wishes of community members.

GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
Fort Peck Community College has developed a variety of academic and vocational programs to make area residents more employable and to improve employee efficiency within local businesses, industries and agencies. Associate of Arts and Associate of Science degrees are offered as well as Associate of Applied Science and several vocational certificate programs. In conjunction with Rocky Mountain College, Montana State University-Northern, and the University of Montana, articulation agreements allow students to acquire Bachelor’s degrees in elementary education, business, technology, information technology and psychology.
