Navajo Community College--The President's Report, 1979-80.
Jackson, Dean C.
An overview of the Navajo Community College (NCC) is presented with a message from the president and facts pertaining to both the Tsaile and Shiprock campuses. NCC President Jackson states that the uniqueness of NCC lies primarily in the instructional area which promotes the use of educational concepts contained in the Navajo culture to reinforce the standard academic program. President Jackson then discusses accomplishments, hopes, and plans (including working for an amendment to PL-95-471, the Tribally Controlled Community College Act of 1978). The main portion begins with the school's purpose which is to use the Navajo culture as a base from which to acquire the knowledge, skills, and technology of the dominant society in turn resulting in a fuller participation in the economic, social, and political world of the two prevailing cultures. The Tsaile campus is highlighted in the following areas: faculty/staff accomplishments, research in progress, technical aid, the 45 instructional programs offered, continuing education, student services, support services (including access to computers with 200 data bases), athletics (varsity team in archery ranked eighth nationally), and student recruitment. The Shiprock campus is similarily highlighted. Total student enrollment is discussed (2,021 for Spring/1980) as well as long-range planning and financial operations. (AN)
