Haskell Indian Nations University has instructors getting time off with pay to finish their Ph.D’s.. so why aren’t they finished?

Once again we felt a comment was so good we have made it our blog entry.

Haskellnews now that you’re on the topic of Goodfox (actually she’s always been right in the mix) whatever happened to the Indigenous Nations Studies Journal that she was in charge of?

And what happened to the American Indian and Alaskan Native Professors Association conference that her KU buddy YellowBird put her in charge of when she was his student?

And did she ever get the PhD that Warner allowed her to work on with full pay?

Is it true the Union is comprised of members from AIS faculty (the same ones who have not provided actual facts to students about issues on campus)

Its obvious they don’t provide facts about issues on campus, but the content of her AIS class is lacking more than a few facts too. Can you post the outline of the course?

To question # 1 We believe you will find this link helpful: Stating that Ms. Goodfox is currently on the Indigenous Nations Studies Today Editorial Board from 2006 – present . You may find this link helpful. http://www.linkedin.com/in/juliagoodfox

To question # 2 We found nothing for the conference past 2005, however there may be more information out there and we welcome that information to be posted on our blog. You may find this link helpful we did, it list Venita Chenault and Karen Swisher however there was nothing listed on it for Ms. Goodfox. https://pantherfile.uwm.edu/michael/www/nativeprofs/conferenceinfo/index.htm

To question # 3 No Ms. Goodfox does not have a Ph.D nor does her fellow faulty AIS instructor Mike Tosee, however, they were both given time off with pay to finish their Ph.D’s by Dr. Warner . At this time Teresa Milk has been hired to teach for Mike Tosee while he is given more time off to finish his Ph.D. You may find this link helpful: http://www.haskell.edu

To question # 4 We do not know the answer as to Haskell employees who comprised their union. However we do know that the Haskell Union is a closed shop and Haskell employees can be represented by that particular union without their knowledge or consent. We invite anyone with more information on this question to post it to our blog.

To question # 5 Good question, however, we could not find any course outline posted for Ms.Goodfox classes. Again we invite anyone with more information on this question to post it to our blog. Ms. Goodfox does currently have a blog that you may find helpful: lastwoman.wordpress.com and also say’s about herself on Tweeter that she “acts up on the side”, we found that statement disturbing for for Haskell Indian Nations University faulty member to say.

    Good questions, will have to check out the links. I am certain a lot of TCU faculty would appreciate time off to complete their PhDs within a specified time period especially if they are being paid. Isn’t the one faculty going on year two now? How long does faculty have to complete a doctoral degree? Is this through the American Indian College Fund? Were they too busy with union stuff to finish in a timely manner?

    I don’t know if that is typical. I would think it would be in the University’s best interest to have more Phd’s on staff. I would hope they are getting a service commitment in exchange for the paid time off to get those Phd’s.
