Commitment to Building Prosperous Nations: Tribal Colleges Take Aim against Poverty
Fogarty, Mark
Tribal College Journal of American Indian Higher Education, v18 n3 p12-17 Spr 2007
The article reports that Tribal colleges and universities in the United States seek to promote culturally appropriate development and to improve the financial situations not only of their students but the tribal matrix they come from. A study by the American Indian Higher Education Consortium and the Institute for Higher Education Policy identifies various ways that tribal colleges impact their communities: direct spending and employment, workforce development, business attraction, small business and entrepreneurship development, technology transfer, leadership, and communication linkages.
