A Study of the Problems of Indian Students in Selected Minnesota Colleges.
Wolf, Raymond R.
The purpose of this study was to identify and analyze some of the problems American Indian students confront in Minnesota colleges. Data was obtained by a closed questionnaire sent to 100 Indian students attending Minnesota colleges or universities. All questionnaires were mailed after the final quarter of the school term had begun. There was a 40% return. A significant finding was that the respondents felt they had poor academic preparation for college. Also, half the students felt they had fewer funds to attend college than their non-Indian counterparts. This financial problem, however, does not seem to be a problem unique to Indians. There were no significant problems which could be identified as distinctively "Indian." (FF)
