Administered by the Menominee Nation, the college's main campus is in Keshena, Wisconsin; another is in Oneida, on the reservation of the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin. It is one of two tribal colleges in Wisconsin.


The college was chartered by the Menominee Tribal Legislature in 1993 and began offering classes in the 1993 Spring semester. The College of Menominee Nation was granted full accreditation by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools on August 7, 1998. It is a member of the American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC).[1]
