Indian Resource Development. Annual Report, 1983-1984.
New Mexico State Univ., Las Cruces.
With a budget of $210,000 appropriated by the New Mexico State Legislature, the Indian Resource Development (IRD) Program marked its eighth year by continuing to develop a corps of professionally trained American Indians in fields related to natural resource development in New Mexico through college academic education and related practical work experience. These services are provided both individually and through IRD contracts with programs at New Mexico State University, the University of New Mexico, and the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology. Following the introduction and a brief history of IRD, the report covers: leadership (permanent staff and program); recruitment of Indian high school and college students; student services (financial aid information, retention, tutoring and counseling); student seminars (pilot seminar in cognitive development for incoming engineering freshmen); work experience through part-time employment, work study, summer jobs, internships, co-op assignment, and employment assistance. Other topics of the report include: high school orientation; program support from colleges of engineering, business administration and economics, and agriculture; and program related staff activities. Numerous appendices include committee agendas and reports; examples of letters and forms; and student test results and evaluations. (NEC)
