Navajo Technical College Facts
- 1979- the Navajo Skills Center was established to meet the growing demand for higher education.
- 1985- the Skills Center became the Crown Point Institute of Technology in Crown Point, NM, when the Center started to offer Associate Degrees.
- 2005- the College changed it’s name to Navajo Technical College (NTC) in part because of it’s expansion of educational services, including Bachelor Degrees on the Navajo Nation.
- 2006- NTC opened an instructional site in Chinle, AZ.
Out of 191 graduates from last year, 47% or 90 were placed in jobs and 42 students are continuing their education. 58 students didn’t respond to survey. Although NTC has a Job Placement Counselor on staff, collecting data or tracking students is a challenge due to the poor infrastructure needs of the area (no internet, poor telephones, etc.).
