An Indian Education Resources Center.
Benham, William J.
An Indian Education Resources Center has been established in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to improve educational opportunities for American Indian students. Part of the Bureau of Indian Affairs' Central Office of Indian Education Program, the center was established after a thorough review of the Bureau's Central Office education operations revealed a need to locate some Washington, D.C. office services closer to the scene of action. Therefore, a Field Service Office was established in Albuquerque, and part of the Washington-based education staff located there. In August 1972 the name was changed from Field Services to the Indian Education Resources Center. The center's main goal is to serve Indian education by providing leadership or help for change, and resources for improvement and advocacy of Indian rights. It provides services to Indian students enrolled in public and Federal schools and colleges and universities. The center includes five divisions: (1) the Division of Evaluation, Research and Development; (2) the Division of Continuing Education; (3) the Division of Educational Assistance; (4) the Division of School Facilities; and (5) the Division of Educational Audio-Visual Services. This paper discusses the services provided by each division. (NQ)
