Is the leadership at Haskell Indian Nations University allowing students who have been academically removed to be reinstated?

Is the current leadership at Haskell Indian Nations in Lawrence, Kansas, allowing students who have been academically removed to be reinstated?

Is the current leadership at Haskell allowing the rescinding of student write ups?

Is the current leadership at Haskell allowing the students to learn a sad game of how to stay at Haskell? By letting students show up for classes every now and again so they can stay free of charge in the dorms for 5, 6, 7, years or more at a time without getting a degree?

Is the current leadership at Haskell more concerned with students having clean rooms, then getting a success center, with that grant money, they received?

Is the current leadership at Haskell more concerned with letting the teaching staff have days off, then holding classes for students?

Who’s in charge of all those grants that Haskell has? Where is the money going? Why isn’t the current leadership calling for an audit of Haskell finances?

Is the Haskell union trying to get Venida Chenault in as Haskell’s next president?

Of course the Haskell union (FEDERATION OF INDIAN SERVICE EMPLOYEES) is all about the best interest of the Haskell employees, who has the students best interest at heart? Apparently not the current leadership?

Is the current leadership at Haskell looking out for the best interest of a few chosen employees?

Venida’s doing such a good job pleasing the employees and not graduating the students, maybe she should become Haskell’s next president? After all Haskell has become an employment agency hasn’t it? It certainly isn’t a university with a one percent graduation rate.

If the current leadership at Haskell continues to make the students concentrate on keeping their rooms clean maybe the students can get jobs at the nearest Holiday Inn cleaning rooms, most likely without the degrees they came to get, that’s about all they will be able to do, isn’t it?

While Haskell’s current leadership collects their government pay checks.

We truly hope Haskell get’s a real president, who comes in and cares not about the employees, but all about the students.

Maybe Haskell parents should start demanding that their kids receive an education? One thing is for sure The United States Government isn’t going to. Nor is Larry Echohawk, The current Haskell leadership, The Bureau of Indian Education, or President Barack Obama…. are they?

George Tiger and Haskell Indian Nations University President’s Office cancels Board of Regents meeting.

George Tiger and The Haskell’s President’s Office ( the acting this week is Clyde Peacock) has canceled the November 2010 Board of Regents meeting due to a lack of quorum.

Funny, we thought you had to actually be at the meeting to see if a quorum exists or not. Besides if George Tiger is going to be there, he thinks highly enough of himself to be the quorum. Just ask his own tribal members at The Creek Nation. Link: http://www.thevoicesofcourage.com

Not that the Haskell Board of Regents needs to meet. All they seem to accomplish is spending the schools money and canceling four year programs.

Never mind all of the current problems Haskell is now facing, the crime on campus, the lack of graduates, and no leadership whatsoever at the school.

George Tiger is right, this particular board of regents needs too stay where they are at…. at home.
