Tribally Controlled Community College Assistance Act of 1978, Public Law 95-471. Fiscal Year 1980 Report to the Congress of the United States of America.
During the first year of operation under the Act, major problems encountered focused on: (1) defining the terms "full time equivalent" (FTE) student for purposes of per capita financial support to approved institutions; (2) the planning, conduct, and analyses of feasibility studies to better specify the constituent population and their institutional needs; and (3) the development of a formula for allocating annual grant monies to participating Tribal Colleges. Recommendations center on possible revisions or amendments to the Act, based on the experience of the Bureau of Indian Affairs and 12 colleges which enrolled 4,254 students, for an FTE student count of 1,958 persons. Five appendices complete the document. Appendix I contains various forms necessary for a feasibility study for tribally controlled community colleges. Appendix II provides pages from the November 21, 1979, "Federal Register" giving a summary on grants for tribally controlled community colleges and Navajo community colleges. Appendix III is a mission, philosophy, and goals statement demonstrating commonalities of the different tribes involved in the community college movement. Appendix IV graphically depicts organizational structure and accreditation status of tribally controlled community colleges. Appendix V is the latest training and technical assistance activity report made by the American Indian Higher Education Consortium contractors. (BRR)
