The University of Calgary Indian Students' University Programme (I.S.U.P.) Evaluation Report, 1972-73.
Calgary Univ. (Alberta). Faculty of Education.
The document evaluated the first year (1972-73) of operation of the Indian Students' University Programme (ISUP) at the University of Calgary in Alberta, Canada. Early in 1972 a plan was developed with the Department of Indian Affairs whereby the University was to receive up to 50 non-matriculated American Indian students in September 1972. Preliminary meetings were held with a representative Indian group from the Province of Alberta. The Steering Committee, which now plays a major role in policy formation, evolved from this group. Five students were elected members of the Committee and helped to overcome some initial suspicion of the Committee's work with the student group. A policy decision at the Indian Affairs' level determined that at least the first phases of the programme would concentrate on teacher education to meet the demand for Indian teachers. The evaluation discussed the following: (1) introduction; (2) a review of literature which has relevance for the ISUP programme; (3) proposal for funding first phase, 1972-73; (4) interim evaluation; (5) analysis of final examination data; (6) report of participant observer, 1972-72; (7) curriculum recommendations; and (8) a report to members of the ISUP Steering Committee on some ideas from abroad. A major, overall recommendation was that ISUP should continue in essentially the same form. (FF)
