About Little Priest Tribal College

Little Priest Tribal College operates on a two-semester system with sessions from late August to December and January to mid-May. Summer sessions are also offered. Enrollment for the fall and spring semester is approximately 150 full and part-time students per semester. A variety of services is offered to students including career counseling, academic advising, tutoring, and one-on-one support. Class sizes are small and dedicated faculty members readily offer assistance to students. The Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska chartered Little Priest Tribal College (LPTC) in May 1996. Its major focus is to provide a two-year associate degree, and prepare students to transfer and successfully complete a major at a four-year institution. Another equally important part of the college’s mission is to provide language and culture classes and training opportunities for upgrading job skills and improving employability. Little Priest Tribal College is named after Chief Little Priest, the last true war chief of the Winnebago Tribe. The college was declared a land-grant institution in June, 1998, and received accreditation from the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools in August, 1998. It is a great credit to the Winnebago Tribe and to the college to have met all of the Association’s standards of excellence and have achieved the distinction of accreditation, awarded just two years after opening its doors to students. LPTC has signed the Nebraska Transfer Initiative, an agreement with four-year Nebraska institutions to accept the common core of general education courses in the associate of arts, academic transfer degree.

The Little Priest Tribal College library also serves as the public library for the village of Winnebago. The library holds slightly more than 26,000 items, including 53 journal subscriptions, 10 newspaper subscriptions, a broad collection of audio books, over 2,200 DVDs, and a small collection of paperback books for leisure reading. Included in our collections are a number of books, videos and magazines for children and youth.

Courtesy of the Nebraska Library Commission, our electronic journal subscriptions give access to more than 2,200 journal titles in a wide spectrum of disciplines, in full text, including texts of radio and television broadcasts, newspaper articles; and biographies. Requests for additions to our collections are welcome. There is a suggestion box on the main floor.

Interlibrary loan provides access to a vast array of other materials held in other libraries, in Nebraska and across the nation. The library is a signatory to the Nebraska Reciprocal Borrowing Agreement, which means that students and faculty who cannot find what they need at their own institution may go to any other signatory library to borrow the materials they need. They must abide by the circulation policies at the lending institution.

The Native American Collection is especially noteworthy, with over 4,200 items, including reference works, a special selection of Indian Law materials, videotapes, newspapers, journals, and reading materials for children and young adults. This collection will continue to be developed as funding allows, so that it is a point of pride for the college and community, and a research center for the study of Native Americans for our three-state region.
