Haskell reaches deal to bolster interaction with Environmental Protection Agency

P.S. I feel sorry for my friends who have little choice but to attend Haskell.

Haskell reaches deal to bolster interaction with Environmental Protection Agency

Read the Haskell News opinion today.
EPA my a** !
So glad I go to KU !
Jayhawks rock !

Did a Haskell Indian Nations University student assault a Haskell security guard?

Over on the other page today it's talking aabout Haskell and the EPA.
Shouldn't they be working on safety issues and degree programs?????

Sounds more like a save the wetlands: save the beavers program to me.
Sure they want to employ them... but do they want to add to their degree programs?
Thats what they really need.
Make this a four year degree program with students who actually graduate, than you will see more of a postive reaction.
"More chances for Haskell faculty to drive research forward "
Sounds more like a program for the Haskell faculty, first President Redman might want to teach his faculty how to attend classes they are suppose to be teaching?
Start at the bottom and move up President Redman, you have many problems on your campus. You need more 4 year degree programs.

Are there problems at Haskell Indian Nations University’s housing department?

I had heard about the ringworm from my friends...that's so gross! That's not all counselors run around spilling, if I were a student there I would never tell one of those counselors not one thing about myself. I heard that at Haskell you don't necessary have a background in the job that you have there. They give vets preference which is fine, but I believe in an educational setting you should have background in whatever you do on campus. Like counseling and housing. I think the head of housing is also the head of counseling! There's something weird about that. The head of housing can't even run housing!! Customer service??? I was at Haskell one day with a friend first she could not find any dorm staff so she could sign me in then she went to the business office and they were down right rude to her, same experience at the cafeteria. So glad I attend KU. Haskell's president does need to look into this and start getting rid of some of his employees.

A new semester has begun and we hear Chris Redman is doing a good job.

If Haskell is so underfunded why don't students attend their nearest tribal college? And close Haskell down? There seems to be a lot of tribal colleges.
I think it's a bad idea to ask students to lobby for anything. KU would never ask their students to do such a thing. I believe that job would fall to Haskell's Board of Regents. Is that correct?
Didn't someone try to raise tuition at Haskell before to fund more programs and didn't the students protest that?
Thanks for explaining soft money.
I don't know the answer for Haskell, but I know it needs one.
Best of luck to their new president.

I have a lot of friends that attend Haskell.
Haskell News is right, the housing situation is bad.
Why are some students allowed to change rooms when others are not? Why when students get removed from the dorms for bad grades are their grades changed and they get to come back into the dorms? Or when they have been in some sort of trouble again and again get to come back to the dorms? It’s not fair to the students (like my friends) who try and Haskell does have students who really try. Again I agree with Haskell News that it starts with the department heads and maybe it’s time for a changing of the housing guards as far as that goes. How long have the heads of housing been there? Does anyone know? I don’t really like to visit the Haskell dorms because I never feel very safe there. It seems like their housing people can’t be found or are just sitting around in their offices. You won’t find that at KU.

Maybe Haskell should go back to calling themselves Haskell Junior College because that is what they are, don’t you agree? Haskell News is right they need more 4 year degrees in place.

I found this link: http://www.american-school-search.com...

It pretty much supports what Haskell News said.

By the way what soft money are you talking about?
What is soft money and how does it work?

Former Haskell student trying to change rule permitting only federally recognized tribes for admission to university

@ beeshlii
If Haskell's AIS program is educating you, I would say the whole department and all of the students in it are in big trouble !

I go school full time and live off of campus but I do not pay taxes like I would if I were working at the same job for the last 30 years. I'm a KU student but I have friends who are students at Haskell and I am guessing about 95 % of Haskell students live on campus because it is free for them. Free room and board, free cable, free food, etc. Other people's tax dollars do support Haskell. I am beginning to agree with them that Haskell no longer serves a purpose. Why is someone who has a master's wanting to go back to Haskell? Haskell is mainly a two year school. I don't see how they can call themselves a university when they have something like two four year degrees and the rest are two year degrees, what Haskell is is a junior college and not a place for someone with a masters.

Can't get into Haskell? Consider yourself lucky ! Percentages show you probably would not graduate ( they have a graduation rate of nine percent) and if you did chances are the degree you might get from Haskell might not get you a job, ( I.E. The AIS degree) the food is awful, they have instructors only a couple of true professors, they have not had a president in two years, student safety is marginal at best. The saying you get what you pay for is true of Haskell. Count your blessings the government is doing you a favor !
