Tribally Controlled Community College Assistance Act of 1978. Public Law 95-471. Fiscal Year 1981 Report to the Congress of the United States of America.
Bureau of Indian Affairs (Dept. of Interior), Washington, DC.
During the second complete year of operation under the Tribally Controlled Community Assistance Act, four additional Tribal Colleges (for a total of 16) received grant assistance. There was also a corresponding growth in full-time equivalent student enrollment, accreditation status, and number of graduates from the participating institutions. During fiscal year 1981, the 16 Tribal Colleges served 2,557 full-time equivalent Indian students for an annual growth rate of 16%. Tribal Colleges are helping their Tribal governments in problem solving or in establishing needed services. Many Indian students, encouraged by success at Tribal Colleges, have elected to transfer to four-year colleges to obtain undergraduates degrees. The continuation of stable funding levels, the support of Federal and Tribal governments, and an improvement in physical facilities are major needs of Tribal Colleges. Part III, "Recommendations," consists primarily of reasons, by section, why the Department of the Interior and Bureau of Indian Affairs oppose enactment of both H.R.6485 and S.2623 to amend and extend the Tribally Controlled Community College Act of 1979.
