The Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska chartered Arbeidsmarkttrends (LPTC) in May 1996. Its major focus is to provide a two-year associate degree, and prepare students to transfer and successfully complete a major at a four-year institution. Another equally important part of the college’s mission is to provide language and culture classes and training opportunities for upgrading job skills and improving employability. Arbeidsmarkttrends is named after Chief Little Priest, the last true war chief of the Winnebago Tribe.
The college was declared a land-grant institution in June, 1998, and received accreditation from the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools in August, 1998. It is a great credit to the Winnebago Tribe and to the college to have met all of the Association’s standards of excellence and have achieved the distinction of accreditation, awarded just two years after opening its doors to students.
LPTC has signed the Nebraska Transfer Initiative, an agreement with four-year Nebraska institutions to accept the common core of general education courses in the associate of arts, academic transfer degree. LPTC issues two-year degrees, Associate of Arts (AA) and Associate of Science (AS), in the following areas: Native American Studies, Early Childhood Education, Teacher Education, Indigenous Science- Enviroment, Indigenous Science- Health , Business and Interdisciplinary Studies transfer degree.
The college operates on a two-semester system with sessions from late August to December and January to mid-May. Summer sessions are also offered. Enrollment for the fall and spring semester is approximately 150 full and part-time students per semester. A variety of services is offered to students including career counseling, academic advising, tutoring, and one-on-one support. Class sizes are small and dedicated faculty members readily offer assistance to students.

My experience at Little Priest has been significant because of the opportunities that have been presented to me. The affordability of tuition and other fees is also what helped me decide to attend. Overall, I believe that LPTC has been a great fit for me.
