Its primary goal is to serve the educational and training needs of Pacific Northwest Tribes and their people. NWIC’s name in the Lummi language, XWLEMI ELH>TAL>NEXW SQUL (the people’s education), is the basis for the college’s mission, which states: Through education, Northwest Indian College promotes Indigenous self-determination and knowledge.

Our main campus is located on the Lummi Reservation near Bellingham, Washington, with extended campus sites situated on reservations in Washington and Idaho.
