Institute for California Native Student Success (ICNSS)

The Institute for California Native Student Success (ICNSS) presents high-impact events and activities to support youth from local California tribes and their larger Native community. The emphasis is on contact with and mentorship by the staff at the ARC Native American Resource Center resulting in successful matriculation to college.

The American Indian Summer Institute (AISI) at ARC is the major onramp to the ICNSS program. ICNSS runs throughout the year.

ICNSS is sponsored by SMUD and American River College.
