Office of the President

Dr. Tamarah Pfeiffer (SIPI President)


I am of the Bitterwater clan, born for the Metal Hat People ; Salt clan are my chei's; and Metal Hat People are my naali's. In my time with the BIE I have most proud of my work as the Associate Deputy Director for Navajo,  and the 1st Chief Academic Office. It has been my philosophy that students come first.  

As the incoming President of SIPI, I am  proud of the dedicated students, faculty and staff for their work over the course of the last two years.   The accomplishments of SIPI happen daily as students, faculty and staff build and develop new practices and processes to support an engaging learning environment. 

The work ahead takes a commitment by all at SIPI.  As a  college that has grown over the last 50 years it is my expectation that the college will build on it's history for another 50 years.

Expect Success!

Tamarah Pfeiffer, Ph.D
