Tribal Learning Community & Educational Exchange

Accessible Higher Education for Citizens of Native Nations

Welcome to the Tribal Learning Community & Educational Exchange (TLCEE). We hope you will find useful information on these web pages for our Native community here at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Whether you are interested in law school related matters, graduate or undergraduate education, or Professional Development, please feel free to email us at with questions about our American Indian programs, Native UCLA community or TLCEE online programs. 

The Tribal Learning Community & Educational Exchange (TLCEE) is an innovative legal and general education program housed at the UCLA School of Law. With its interdisciplinary scope, TLCEE joins Native peoples’ perspectives, knowledge, priorities, and visions for the future with the academic world at UCLA. TLCEE's primary goal is to develop relevant courses for delivery to Native community members and UCLA students interested in American Indian Studies. Collaborating with Native community members and traditional knowledge bearers, TLCEE focuses on enhancing Native governance and cultural resource protection. TLCEE also encourages Native youth and Tribal community members to enroll in college level courses and works to serve as a base for Native community members attending UCLA.
TLCEE is made possible by a generous endowment from the 
San Manuel Band of Serrano Indians.

If you have any questions about TLCEE, its course offerings, or its projects, please contact us at: (or) call our UCLA Office at: 310-794-5216
