Cal State Univ. San Bernardino Tribal Relations - Land Acknowledgement

CSUSB Tribal Relations 


The Office of Tribal Relations was created by CSUSB President Tomás Morales to increase enrollment of Native Americans at CSUSB and to create opportunities for American Indians throughout the world of higher education. The office seeks to promote Native American perspectives across campus, promote safe spaces, and provide support for overcoming any challenges that our students might encounter. In collaboration with numerous departments, the Office of Tribal Relations, the Santos Manuel Student Union, and the Office of Outreach and Student Recruitment are here to assist you throughout your educational journey at CSUSB.
