The Indian Resources Development and Internship Program (IRDI), Fiscal Year 1979-1980. Annual Progress Report.
New Mexico State Univ., Las Cruces.
The Indian Resources Development and Internship (IRDI) Program marked its fifth year by continuing to assist Indian tribes in developing a managerial, professional, and scientific corps of American Indians through college academic education and related practical work experience. Participants attended universities and pursued majors of their choice, considering tribal needs and individual interest. Program activities during the past fiscal year included: the American Indian Leadership Seminar (full report presented) held in Santa Fe, New Mexico during the legislative session; the 1980 university orientation for Indian high school students (full report presented) held in Las Cruces, New Mexico; four science and engineering summer programs at western universities sponsored by the Council of Energy Resource Tribes; other summer education and internship programs; continued effective recruitment and information dissemination; and extension of IRDI Program to cooperating Indian tribes in Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah. Attention was given by 17 land grant universities to the planned Indian Resources Development Institutes, and the Trust and Indian Real Property Management Undergraduate Degree Program made good progress at New Mexico State University.
