Tribal Colleges Stay Strong But Face Challenges
Tabitha Whissemore, Community College Daily
Students, staff, and faculty at tribal colleges have a lot on their minds as they deal with the upheaval caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Internet access is limited while the need to get online for courses is burgeoning. Student parents are helping their children with schoolwork while balancing their own courses. Many students have lost jobs as tribes have had to lay off employees.
Despite these challenges, tribal colleges are working hard to preserve a sense of normality for students and provide them with the support and resources they need to move forward.
