40 years ago: Haskell to be placed under centralized BIA, regents say

April 29, 2012


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for April 29, 1972:

Several resolutions had been approved at a meeting by the Haskel Indian Junior College Board of Regents this week. The resolutions called for Haskell to be placed under the supervision of the central Bureau of Indian Affairs office in Washington. This would involve removing the college from the authority of the BIA's area office in Oklahoma. Additional resolutions called for the implementation of an "Indian studies program," a review of the contract awarding and employment policies "to insure complete and adequate consideration of Indian contractors," and that a technical adviser be requested to serve the board. The establishment of an ROTC program on campus was also approved.
