About Us


FALCON (First Americans Land grant Consortium) is a professional association of Tribal College & Universities administrators, faculty, extension educators, researchers and students who work on land grant programs. 



Addressing Capacity Building Needs among the 1994 Land Grant Institutions.​

FALCON was created in 2004 to help address the limited human capacity at the 1994 Land Grant Institutions (Tribal Colleges and Universities).  It provides a peer-to-peer network that supports 1994 administrators, directors, faculty, extension educators and students in fulfilling their land grant mission.  FALCON helps establish connections with partners who share common interests and goals and can leverage resources.  Click on Our Programs to learn more.
