Indian Resource Development. Annual Report 1982-1983.
New Mexico State Univ., Las Cruces.
During the 1982-83 fiscal year, Indian Resource Development (IRD) continued to work to fulfill its mission of assisting Indian tribes to gain effective control and management of the development of their natural resources by providing a cadre of educated and experienced Indian people to fill technical and management positions. Headquartered at New Mexico State University (NMSU), IRD works with Indian students and tribes throughout the state by encouraging the students to attend the university of their choice and major in natural resource related fields such as agriculture, veterinary medicine, forestry, fish and wildlife, geosciences, physical sciences, computer science, engineering, economics, statistics, management, or business. The annual report covers: recruitment and retention; student services (financial aid information and retention services); cognitive development; high school orientation (staff, student recruitment and selection, assessment, learning skills, special events, program evaluation); work experience for students; business (seminar, trust and real property management); College of Engineering at NMSU, Native American Program at UNM; agriculture; contacts (colleges and universities, Indian tribes, organizations and companies, government entities, and support); and institute development (the conversion of IRD to a stand alone unit under the College of Agriculture, funding, Indian advisory committee). Appendices include information material distributed, form letters, letters of support, and lists of student participants. (ERB)
