Building Natural Resources Capacity

Funded by a NIFA-administered grant, tribal colleges and land-grant universities in Midwestern states are cooperating to build natural resources capacity in the colleges. Participating institutions are Fort Berthold and Nebraska Indian community colleges; Sitting Bull College; Sinte Gleska University; Iowa State, North Dakota State, and South Dakota State universities; and the University of Nebraska.

The project has permitted each of the tribal colleges to hire a natural resources instructor. Each college is also conducting research projects and is expanding its natural resources curricular offerings. The land-grant universities provide expertise to the tribal college program-building activities.
