About Session

College Horizons (CH) is a national non-profit organization based in New Mexico located on the homelands of the Pueblo People. CH serves and supports the college-going pathways for Native American, Native Hawaiian, and Alaska Native students. Today, CH has grown to serve more than 4,000 native students; with nearly 800 of those students identifying as Native Hawaiian. College Horizons navigates the space between generational trauma and ancestral stamina balancing old and new narratives in education. At College Horizons we believe there are alternative ways to close, mend and heal the college attainment gap for Native American and Native Hawaiian students. Join us for a discussion on the valuable lessons we’ve learned about how to successfully support native students’ college going pathways.
