Haskell Indian Nations University is a tribal university located in Lawrence, Kansas, for members of federally recognized Native American tribes in the United States.

Enrollment at the campus is nearly 1,000 students per semester, representing approximately 140 Tribal Nations and Alaska Native communities. Along with Southwestern Indian Polytechnic Institute, Haskell is funded by the Bureau of Indian Education. As such, because of U.S. Trust Responsibility to American Indian Tribes, Haskell does not charge tuition. However, students are responsible for paying semester fees.

Haskell is home to the Haskell Cultural Center and Museum, the American Indian Athletic Hall of Fame, the Indian Leader, the oldest American Indian student newspaper in the country, numerous student clubs and organizations, the Haskell Medicine Wheel Earthwork, and the Haskell-Baker Wetlands. The renowned Rinehart Collection is housed in the Haskell Cultural Center. Numerous sculptures and murals are located throughout the campus. The University is one of 37 members of the American Indian Higher Education Consortium, an organization for Tribal colleges and universities. Haskell also is a member of the American Council on Education, The Council for Higher Education Accreditation, North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, and the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics.

The University enjoys a positive reputation for hosting cultural and academic events that attracts visitors (both American Indian and non-Indian) from across the country and abroad. These activities include the annual Haskell Indian Art Market, the Stories-n-Motion Film Festival, and the Haskell Commencement Pow-Wow. These public events are held along with numerous educational conferences, workshops, and presentations.

Due to its unique history, visitors enjoy touring and learning about Haskell history and its campus. A self-guided Walking Tour map is available courtesy of the Haskell Cultural Center. Twelve campus buildings are U.S. National Historic Landmarks.
