Serving Native Americans in higher education
Maricopa Community College Hoop of Learning is an early high school-to-college bridge program available at all 10 colleges. Since its establishment in 1995, its intention is to reduce economic and cultural barriers that American Indians may face, while helping high school students transition into college. The program is indigenous by design, based on a traditional Native American worldview of a circle, or hoop, of lifelong development. Its mission is to encourage, enable, and create conditions that empower American Indian students to complete high school and transition successfully to higher education.
