UNT and NISTS host American Indian & Alaska Native College Student Success Symposium

The American Indian & Alaska Native College Student Success Symposium was a one-day event held October 17, 2012 in Oklahoma City that brought together higher education professionals and tribal education professionals to discuss research and practice for increasing and improving American Indian college student access, success and transfer. This was a joint venture between the National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students (NISTS) and the University of North Texas as part of a research grant funded by the TG Public Benefit Grant Program awarded to UNT's Dr. Amy Fann, Dr. Beverly Bower and Dr. Janet Marling. Dr. Amy Fann presented first findings from their study American Indian and Alaska Native Community College Student Success and Transfer: Exploring Promising Practices of 2-Year Tribal Colleges and Native American Serving Non-Tribal Institutions.
