About Sinte Gleska University
As a private, American Indian tribal college on the Rosebud Indian Reservation, Sinte Gleska University (SGU) provides a model for Indian-controlled education. Regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, we are an institute governed by people rooted to the reservation and culture, concerned about the future, and willing to work to see the institution grow. SGU provides each Lakota person the opportunity to pursue an education and does so in a way that is relevant to career and personal needs. Our graduates help determine the future development and direction of the Tribe and its institutions.
SGU was established in 1970 by the tribal government to strengthen the Sicangu Lakota Oyate (Rosebud Sioux Tribe). Its founding was to address all areas affecting our tribal daily way of life, including developing our own accreditation model so as to have complete educational ownership of our educational system with reciprocity of courses with exciting regional accreditation systems.
SGU strives to build a healthy tribal nation and sustain cultural identity by developing critical-minded lifelong learners who promote dialogue and analysis, value diversity, and provide leadership for future generations to come.
SGU looks to strengthen the Sicangu Nation through higher education opportunities that promote indigenous models of teaching, research in tribal economic development, and use of the Lakota language and other cultural areas of need such as history, ceremonies, sacred sites and all traditional values (respect, generosity, compassion, care, and sharing amongst others) as well as addressing all other areas of need such as health, judicial, social, housing, energy, transportation, technology, youth and elders.
