Native American Cultural Center
Northern Arizona University opened the Native American Cultural Center (NACC) in October 2011. The construction totaled $7 million, with $2.7 million donated by the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians of California.
NAU has the highest percentage of Native American student enrollment in the United States. The NACC is designed to serve the needs of these students on the University's campus by creating a space for socialization, studying, programs, and ceremonies.
The 12,000 square-foot round building features curved hallways encircling a central gathering room, a conference room, an elders' room, and a window framing the San Francisco Peaks, which many tribes hold sacred. The NACC occupies the former site of the Counseling and Testing Center.
