Educating the Educators: A Report of the Institute on "The American Indian Student in Higher Education" (St. Lawrence University, July 12-30, 1971).
Sandstrom, Roy H., Ed.; Segal, Barbara K., Ed.
A 3-week summer institute on the American Indian student in higher education brought together college administrators, curriculum specialists, and Indian educational leaders to mutually explore possible solutions to those problems which the Indian student confronts as obstacles to a college degree. Additional purposes of the institute were to develop in educators a sensitivity to the Indian and his culture and to establish vital communication links between representatives of educational institutions and key individuals in Indian communities. The institute consisted of lectures by program staff and guest consultants, discussions, workshops, field trips, and films to give participants knowledge of Indian life-styles. Subjects of principal concentration were student recruitment and admissions, financial aid, counseling, compensatory remedial instruction, and Native American studies. Proceedings, findings, and workshop recommendations are recorded in this institute report. (JH)
