SANTA FE (KRQE) – According to Native News Online, the Institute of American Indian Arts will open a new two-story Welcome Center with a ribbon cutting at 1 p.m. Wednesday in Santa Fe.

The building was funded by a U.S. Department of Education grant, two USDA Rural Development Tribal College Initiative Community Facility grants and funding from a state general obligation bond.

Native News Online reports the school’s enrollment has grown 115 percent since 2007, creating the need for new buildings.

The new Welcome Center will house administration office, the president’s office and student services offices, including admissions and financial aid.
