The article presents information on challenges faced by tribal colleges in the United States. A study has revealed that retention rates at 1,127 community colleges in the U.S. is very low. Approximately 67 percent of "tribal college" students are women. Students of tribal colleges often stop pursuing their studies due to family problems. To counter the problem of retention, tribal colleges and their partners organized two retention conferences recently. Salish Kootenai College, Montana boasts of the highest retention rates amongst the tribal colleges.
