Creeks purchase land for college
Condensed by Native Village

  OKMULGEE, Okla. – The Muscogee (Creek) Nation has purchased 15 acres of land from Oklahoma State University Institute of Technology for the College of the Muscogee Nation’s Campus.  OSUIT President, Dr. Bob Klabenes, and Muscogee Creek Principal Chief A.D. Ellis, completed the property transfer earlier this year.  f

 The College of the Muscogee Nation offers two-year Associate Degrees and is one of four tribal colleges within the state of Oklahoma. The college plans to start construction on its first building in a few months.

 Klabenes said “this will be an excellent opportunity for all students pursuing a post secondary education. With this purchase we will have an educational complex composed of OSUIT, Green Country Technology Center, and the CMN, all within a mile of one another.”
