A quality education at Haskell ? Ask Stephanie Birdwell-Bighorn.
Some of us not so long ago heard Stephanie Birdwell-Bighorn refer to Haskell as a premier university: Some of us also almost fell out of our seats. A premier university Haskell?
Well it should be and could be, but it never will be until:
A. A person (Stephanie Birdwell-Bighorn) with a master’s degree in social work isn’t running Haskell any longer.
B. Employees who work at Haskell have real credentials (okay some do, but few).
C. Haskell is no longer just a junior college going by the name of university.
D. Haskell get’s a new board of regents who actually do their job and GO lobby for funding, so the student fees do not have to be raised in order for the school to survive.
E. Haskell employee’s job descriptions are very specific and employees are held to those job descriptions.
F. A full out and out investigation of The Haskell finance department is done. Has that EVER been done?
G. The buildings are no longer in such poor shape that students do not have to move out in the middle of the semester so that bathrooms can be repaired.
H. Someone gets a full inspection of how Curtis Hall (Haskell’s kitchen) is being run. We have heard sooo many complaints about that kitchen lately it should probably be closed down until someone investigates just what is going on there.
I. Lately we have been wondering are there any instructors or upper level personnel who say they are Native but really aren’t? We don’t care if you work at Haskell and are Native or Non-Native but we do care if you tell or give the impression to Haskell students that you are someone you are not. That would also go for any instructor who gives the impression that they are oh say an attorney when they are not.
J. Haskell instructors would also need to stop sleeping with their students, start publishing some of their works, ( Venita Chenault since you just finished up an entire year at KU, we can’t wait to see yours ) show up for classes with new materials and hey maybe try teaching somewhere besides Haskell and see if you make the grade there.
K. All Haskell employees need to be drug tested and no drinking on the job.
We tried to look up Haskell’s ranking in US World News and World Report, unfornately it ranks so low that the ranking doesn’t even show, so then we decided to see when Stephanie Birdwell-Bighorn had last attended or even worked at Haskell she had not, apparently finding NSU and SES more to her likening.
Is Haskell a premier university? Not while a social worker named Stephanie Birdwell-Bighorn is in charge.
