Are you a KU student interested in learning more about Native American issues? Or are you a Haskell student interested in a class at KU? Maybe you want a different perspective on current events or are simply looking for a different campus experience?
Whether you are a student at KU or Haskell, you can take advantage of the Haskell/KU Exchange Program! This fantastic partnership between two historic campuses represents a wonderful opportunity for both Haskell Indian Nations University students and University of Kansas students to take classes at either KU or Haskell while remaining a full-time student at their home campus.
How did you hear about the program and how did it benefit you?
I heard about the exchange program through the First Nations Student Association. I have learned about Indigenous viewpoints that were never discussed amongst my family while I was growing up. Through it I have learned about the different tribes and their cultures. The program has also allowed me to meet new people and get involved with organizations at Haskell. -Steph, KU Student
Did you attend any events other than class at Haskell?
I attended the powwows, as well as activities sponsored by the Wetlands Preservation Organization, American Indian Studies, and the Ecology Clubs. There were so many lectures given by a variety of visitors such as one of the Lost Boys of the Sudan and Winona LaDuke. -Angela, KU Student
