The Indian College Student in California: 1967-1972.
The document is a report of the American Indians in higher education in California. Some 2,400 Indian students are expected to enroll in the academic year 1972-73, at some 55 or more colleges and universities in California. To serve the special needs of the Indian population, $1,047,500 was allocated for some 19 of these institutions. This figure includes staff salaries for faculty, curriculum development, counseling, recruiting, and financial aids officers. Despite the impressive growth in numbers of Indian students, faculty, support services, curriculum, and budget, though, the total commitment of higher education institutions to the Indian student is not nearly adequate to meet their needs. Topics of discussion include: (1) the Indian student; (2) Budget: what share does the Indian get? (3) Native American Studies; (4) Areas for further research--dropout rate, success of Indian students in relation to Indian-oriented curriculum, skills needed on California Indian reservations, etc.; and (5) 4 appendixes--arriving at the figures, selected statistics, reasons for dropout, and staff totals.
