The Feasibility of an Indian University at Bacone College.
Financial, demographic, and enrollment data are presented in this six-part report analyzing the feasibility of the establishment of a four-year American Indian University at Bacone College, Oklahoma. Chapter I considers possible goals for the Indian University in terms of curriculum, clientele, administration, and school-community relations. General background information is presented in Chapter II, which focuses on the history of Bacone College, the growth in national enrollments from 1950 to 1975, the projected decline in enrollments through 2000, the oversupply of college faculty and graduates projected for 1980 through 2000, and the financial and enrollment status of the nation's private colleges. Chapter III assesses the need for the Indian University, referring to the relatively low number of Indian college graduates, the scope of existing programs for Indians, and the educational needs of Indian communities in the areas of technology, energy, law, forestry, health, and education. Chapter IV provides a demographic profile of the nation's Indian population and an examination of the characteristics and attrition rates of Indian high school and college students nationwide. Chapter V analyzes the anticipated costs of establishing Indian University, and Chapter VI concludes the report with an outline of the arguments for and against its establishment. Data tables are included. (JP)
