NCAA committee makes ruling on mascot use
The National Collegiate Athletic Association's Executive Committee Friday adopted a new policy to keep member institutions from displaying what it termed "hostile and abusive" racial/ethnic/national origin mascots, nicknames or imagery at any of the 88 NCAA championships.  The committee also approved recommended best practices for schools who continue to use Native American mascots and nicknames in their athletic programs.  This action follows an NCAA-directed survey of institutions who use mascots or nicknames with Native American origins.

14th Faculty Resource Guide in draft stage

Faculty members are encouraged to watch their e-mail for a link to the draft copy, along with instructions for providing updated information.

Non-Traditional Students get special services
Suite 2064 on the second floor of the Student Union is the new home for the Office of Non-Traditional Student Services. 
So, who is a non-traditional student?  Generally, that can be a student who is age 25 or over; married, with or without children; single or divorced, with children; working professional; and those who are returning to school after five or more years. The staff's goal is to enrich nontraditional students' educational experience by connecting students to academic and social services while providing the support needed to ensure their success. Visit the office or call 972-2055 for more information on this new operation in the Tribal Leadership Center.
