Native American Student Profile

Title III, Part F Grant, Fast Forward

In September 2011, San Juan College was awarded a U.S. Department of Education Title III Part F grant for a single Native American Serving Non-Tribal Institution (NASNTI) activity to identify and develop strategies that support Native American academic progress, degree completion, and increase transfer rates.

Purpose

The purpose of this Native American Student Profile is to gain a better understanding of the needs of Native American students at San Juan College regarding their education experience and success. This profile taps into that experience quantitatively. The objective of providing this profile to SJC personnel and the community is the expectation that it will be used in designing instructional programs and allocating resources in future institutional planning.

Methodology

In collaboration with the SJC Office of Institutional Research, student data regarding Native American students were collected and analyzed. Adherence to FERPA standards and the Association of Institutional Research Code of Ethics were followed in the publication of this profile.

Data was extracted from the SJC student information system and unduplicated headcount, duplicated enrollment, student credit hours, and completion/success rates were computed by schools and various course disciplines.
