FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Northern Arizona University has formalized an agreement to help Native American students more seamlessly transfer to the institution.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports (https://bit.ly/1p1BCz4 ) that NAU and Dine (dih-NEH’) College on the Navajo Nation formalized an agreement Monday to form a five-year partnership to share resources and to encourage more Native American students to pursue bachelor’s degrees.

According to the agreement, both schools will appoint a liaison to prepare recommendations for the presidents about using resources between the institutions and help address the education needs of the Navajo Nation.

Dine College was established in 1968 and now serves about 1,700 students. Its main campus is in Tsaile (say-LEE’). With the partnership, Dine students will receive NAU credit for courses completed at Dine if they choose to transfer to NAU.
