History

The Southwestern Indian Polytechnic Institute was conceived by the All Indian Pueblo Council, who envisioned a post-secondary school that could serve the Native American Community. Collective efforts with tribal leaders, public officials, and interested citizens, resulted in the school’s founding in 1971; Dedication ceremonies were held on August 21, 1971, and September 16, 1971, was the first day of classes. It operated initially on an “open-entry, open-exit system” of individualized training.

In 1974, however, SIPI was awarded a citation for Excellence of Service, and by 1975, SIPI received accreditation status at the Certificate Level by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
