Challenges of Finishing College

Wed. 2/6 11a: Graduating from high school and entering college are important issues in American Indian education, but what about finishing college?

Native college students are less likely to graduate in four years than some other groups. Why are the rates so low? Many factors contribute to college success including high school preparation, study skills, and socioeconomic factors.

What unique challenges do Native students face in college? Are programs designed to help American Indian students working?

Guests include: Dr. Leigh Jeanotte (Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa), Director of American Indian Student Services, University of North Dakota, Carmen Lopez (Navajo) executive director of College Horizons Janie Schroeder, UND law student.
