What Is Dr. Linda Sue Warner Doing Wrong ?

What Is Dr. Linda Sue Warner Doing Wrong ?

We were thinking of all the things that Dr.Warner is doing wrong and we came up with this list, she may want to rethink it..right Mr.Echohawk ? ? ?

1.

Gave Haskell Healthier Haskell…how dare she try to improve the lives of Haskell students and faulty ? ? ?
2.

Gave Haskell The Jim Thorpe Fitness Center…again how dare she try to improve the lives of Haskell students and faulty ? ? ?
3.

Told the kitchen staff (Curtis Hall ) that they would no longer lock the students out of the cafeteria and that they would serve the students healthy meals …..how dare she stand up for her students ! ! !
4.

Told facilities that they would work and keep the campus up to par and looking nice…how dare she not want dilapidated buildings and grounds that are not kept ???
5.

Told the teaching staff that like other universities they would teach more classes, so that students could be offered more selections, graduate and move on with their lives…..how dare she ! ! !
6.

Told the teaching staff that they had to bring their curriculum’s up to date and not use the same materials and tests they have been using for the past 10 or 15 years….how could she ? ? ?
7.

Told the housing staff that they needed to be at their work stations ( not at Wal-Mart, etc ) and actually be interacting with the Haskell students….what ? ? ?
8.

She’s trying to implement two new BA programs…aren’t four in about 12 years enough ? ? ?

In other words Dr.Warner is trying to raise the bar and make Haskell a REAL university not just in name only…..HOW COULD SHE ?? RIGHT STEPHANIE BIRDWELL-BIGHORN ! ! !

    Haskell Endowment Association dissolved earlier this year under Warner’s watch. Any insight about what happened and/or why?

    Haskellnews is embarrassing. I don’t know who it is that writes these pathetic excuses for a blog, but they do not represent the Haskell community, they do not represent me. As a Haskell Alumnus, I am outraged, not completely by the content of the blog, but of the style and lack of well thought out material. This blog reads as if a student (s) with very little writing skills and cognitive reasoning is at the helm, scattering misinformation and poorly researched accusations helter skelter. I agree that Linda Sue should be replaced because of her vindictive, self-centered reign as HINU president, but this blog is ridiculous.

    “Vindictive?” OK, then. Tell us about it and be very specific and honest with names. Tell us exactly what your buddies did to earn Warner’s vindictiveness. And then we’ll know the roots of the problems. And it isn’t Warner.

    Actually, a lot of us do know but it will be interesting to see you and your buddies try and wiggle out of admitting anything.

    I would say that while the text has been rough, the points made till now have been valid and appropriate.

    It was stated that a group of concerned students came together “began talking with faculty, staff, and respectfully asked for a place to excercise.” However, you need to realize that what you were doing up until that point was just that, talk. I will give you the benefit of the doubt that what you described actually occurred. But someone had to make that decision to fund and staff the facility. That person according to ljworld stories was Dr. Warner. According to a Haskell staffperson I spoke with, admittedly a small sample size, the idea of an athletic facility had been discussed for literally years with the only action being that of the previous president who provided one for the football team. So I think giving her a large portion of the credit for the facility would not be out of line.

    The other point the haskell staffer/faculty member made was that as of now, the university is in a low level form of anarchy. The line of cars leaving at 4 o’clock, with employees scheduled to leave at 5, is ridiculous. Instructors not showing up for classes and no announcements, employees loading up items in their vehicles and taking them home, dining facilites workers coming in the night loading up food and equipment, all with little fear of any response. The acting president, again as Haskellnews pointed out is only there three days a week.

    Justme2 your premise, although flawed, goes to the heart of what Haskellnews has been trying to convey. You state that the “blog reads as if a student (s) with very little writing skills and cognitive reasoning” had written. That student is a product of Haskell with its 26% graduation rate. I have found something to brag about for Haskell though. According to American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research, Haskell would rank in the bottom ten nationally and bottom five regionally in their graduation rate. So to you I would say, it is not Haskellnews that is embarassing, I would say it is the performance of your alma mater.

    Evidently, based on the AP news article and other ljworld articles, the Haskell President was trying to institute changes. And the people who would be required to do the work, using students as proxies in some cases, went on the attack. I guess at Haskell if you are asked to do a task, and you don’t feel like doing it, then you don’t do it. At this point I would say the employees are solely there for their own enrichment and the students bodies are merely required to continue the charade. The President felt otherwise, attempted to make changes and that brings us to today.

    At this point I would say everyone would be better off just shooting the horse. Take the $14 million dollars, pay to send the current students to either their home state university, or KU. You would double your graduation rate overnight.

    I would not be better off.

    I love this old horse (Haskell ). Where else could I relearn how to speak Mvskoke, experience firsthand a wetlands environment, learn through oral tradition the stories of tribes all across the continent, have a truly international education, find the woman I love, and serve my community all in one place? Haskell is special. Without Haskell I would still be cutting paper in a bindery, making alot of money and caring very little about Indian Country. It’s a place that serves as a tumultuos threshold between indiginous philosophy and western education, where self-determination meets indoctrination. It’s effacacy, however, is deeper than graduation rates and tax dollars. It’s not perfect, but a work in progress. There is good medicine here. When I used to do tours for interested students I always told them, “at Haskell, you can do the bare minimum and get away with it, but I don’t reccomend it. There is opportunity here that you will not find anyplace else, it all depends on how willing you are to work for it.” I meant what I said.

    You don’t realize just how evident all that is wrong with your school is made apparent in your comments, “at Haskell, you can do the bare minimum and get away with it, but I don’t reccomend it. There is opportunity here that you will not find anyplace else, it all depends on how willing you are to work for it.” Based on the 26% graduation rate, only one in four appear willing to work at it, versus 50% at KU.

    You are right with your indoctrination comment, it appears you have been indoctrinated to believe that Haskell is the only place in the world where you can, “…learn how to speak Mvskoke, experience firsthand a wetlands environment, learn through oral tradition the stories of tribes all across the continent, have a truly international education, find the woman I love, and serve my community all in one place.” For example, Oklahoma State University would provide you the very same opportunities you listed with a native population of over 600 students, however there would be no guarantee on the finding the woman you love item. Another possibility would be one of the Tribal Colleges mentioned earlier by someone else.

    I think that is the saddest part of Haskell, is that it seems like so many of the students there think they are getting a quality education because they don’t know any better. More’s the pity…

    I have nothing more to say on Haskellnews and their postings. The whole topic is too depressing and with no resolution in sight. You are an intelligent person PF and I wish you good luck with your education and marriage.
