Sitting Bull College, established in 1973 and situated in Fort Yates, North Dakota, is a public tribal land-grant institution rooted in the Lakota/Dakota culture. Sitting Bull College offers a distinctive educational experience emphasizing indigenous knowledge, with a campus reflecting the spiritual significance tied to the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation. The college provides associate degrees across a range of fields, baccalaureate degrees, and certificate programs with notable academic focuses in areas such as Native American Studies, Natural Resource Management, and Business Administration. It facilitates a modestly selective application process aimed at serving primarily local and tribal students. On-campus housing is available to students looking to immerse themselves in the college community. The campus is located in a rural setting approximately two hours south of Bismarck, the nearest major city. While athletics are not a defining feature of Sitting Bull College, it participates in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) offering various sports programs for student engagement.
