Who checks employee work stations at Haskell Indian Nations University?

@ benofthebull You are right. If Haskell is so eager too write up it's students they should be just as eager too write employee appraisal reports and those should be made public so everyone knows who is doing their jobs and who is not. Of course this needs to done by an outside firm so the appraisals are fair and honest. Right now Haskell is to dysfunctional to have other employees writing them. We have a question about the room checks are the results of those posted in public or private areas. We think they might be violating federal laws if they are posted in a public place. As to why they are getting away with doing them is beyond us. Taxpayers will be demanding answers about how Haskell students are being treated.

@ 3rdiopen Room checks need too be stopped and if you are saying Haskell students don't receive all of their Pell checks at once that needs too be stopped too. Haskell is treating their students like children. As far as a house for President Redman goes, a lot of colleges have a house for the president to stay in during their time as president but they are not given money by the BIE too buy one that is not even in the same state as their college! Are you sure that's right? If so we think that would be a major misuse of taxpayers money.

Inexcusable Customer Service by Haskell Indian Nations University Employees

@ brewmaster There's a stereotype of Natives if we have ever heard one. Go into almost any college dorm room and it won't be 100 percent clean. Haskell's room checks are from the boarding school days. We think benofthebull's idea is right on target " Get rid of these ridiculous, dated room checks and give the students more of a comfortable learning environment." and " finally look into the ridiculousness of the employees in the business office. One possible reason for Haskell's unfortunate problems seems to be the laziness of wanting to train new hires, so they keep the same condescending employees " room checks are a symptom of Haskell's refusal to jump into the year 2012 and treat their students with some degree of respect. We as taxpayers should be demanding that Haskell starts changing.

@ Chicha Haskell has changed a lot since you attended. No sports, the students are treated poorly, they have a president that obviously does not care about them the list goes on. In an attempt to up their numbers Haskell probably does not have high admission standards at the moment. Just because a student has a messy room is no indicator that they are not ready for college. It could be just the opposite....it could mean are they studying so much that a messy room is not as important as their grades! For someone too walk into their rooms( which seems too be an invasion of their privacy) every week too see if they are clean or not and than asking them to sign a legal document stating that their room was messy is just wrong and possibly illegal and of a boarding school mentality which is where the practice stems from. Haskell students are 18 and over if they want to live in a messy room let them. I don't ever want to walk into a college and see every student room sparking clean...sounds very stepford wives to us and that's not a good thing.

@Roh Southwestern Indian Polytechnic Institute in New Mexico does not call itself a university only a institute, it appears that they offer many more 2 year degrees than Haskell does. The sad part is that back in 2010 they lost their accreditation and have not gotten it back yet. They are working on it though. You are correct they are operated just like Haskell by BIA/BIE which is a scary thing. Link: http://www.ncahlc.org/component/com_d...

@frankie8 It can't hurt because until it is bought to the attention of people like Kevin Yoder they no doubt have no idea what goes on at Haskell. We feel really bad for those students too. Some of them show up at Haskell with no more than two dimes to rub together and this is what they unknowingly walk into. Some like 3rdiopen will make it but most will leave.
Vouchers are a great idea and we believe many Haskell students would take advantage of them if the government would give them the chance. We are still upset that the students were in all that heat and no air. That's how much Haskell cares about them.

No one wants to make it worse, but someone has to look into the situation. Even you have too want better than this for your people.

We might be wrong about this but we think it has to have master programs before it can be called a university. No one wants too take it away from Native Americans just make it better. Nothing to do with skin color. We just see where having a community college could benefit both Haskell and the community the Haskell students could finally have what they deserve a real school. They are not being treated right nor are they getting the education they deserve. Haskell is a federal government school and the federal government clearly does not care about Haskell.

Great comment ! No wonder Haskell can't maintain retention rates ! You are right the administration does NOT care, The BIE does not care. There are people in the community who do. Your president got money too buy a house in Lawrence and bought one in Oklahoma, that say's everything !
