This article examines how Montana State University worked with two Native American Tribal Colleges (Dull Knife and Fort Peck) to establish three new undergraduate international courses, which integrated technology, multidisciplinary content, and experiential learning. Students were involved at all three campuses. International agriculture programs augment the student's college experience by providing a meaningful opportunity to learn directly about other cultures. This opportunity enhances a student's self-esteem and leadership qualities. Before the international courses were established, few faculty and students at the participating campuses knew about the benefits of international agriculture.
