Go My Son. For American Indians: Opportunities for Higher Education in the United States.
Brigham Young Univ., Provo, UT. Inst. of American Indian Studies.
Colleges, vocational colleges, and universities offering programs to facilitate the education of American Indian students are listed in this catalog. The list is designed to aid Indian students of high school age who may be planning to obtain a higher education and also to aid high school counselors and others who are attempting to guide Indian students towards higher education. The approximately 80 schools that are listed are making special efforts to minimize the strain that Indian students feel in entering an unknown social and cultural environment. It is stated that American Indian youth are likely to find on these campuses an academic environment where Indian culture is not only respected, but encouraged and supported. A checklist of services and programs at each school--admission policies, scholarship programs, orientation programs, registration advisement, counseling services, Indian publications, social clubs and events, employment placement, and classes and/or degrees--is also provided.
