A comment started us thinking: Is Haskell Indian Nations University’s new windfall, just the old TREO grant? The same one it has received for many years?
We looked around to see if an announcement had been put out by President Obama’s Team, about Indian schools receiving new monies and found…well …..nothing…..
The Title III TREO grant is given to schools by the Federal Department of Education , Haskell has received it for the past several years.
If this is what Haskell has just received, then it adds nothing new to their budget and would be an awful way to deceive The Haskell Student Body, The Indian Communities that Haskell Students represent, it’s employees and the public as a whole ( including The Lawrence Journal World ).
The TREO Grant could be used for The “new” Haskell Success Center….but ,isn’t that just the old TREO program with a new name?
Is it the TREO Grant or isn’t it the TREO Grant?
We looked for the big announcement in press releases by the U.S. Department of Education but it’s not there.
Surely, a grant as big as this would be announced on their web site?….Unless, of course, it is not a new grant? And then the question remains, have the current “leaders” at Haskell Indian Nations University tried to pull one over on all concerned?
U.S. Dept of Education recent Press Releases:

Maybe, now, we know why there is a gag order on ALL Haskell Employees?
