Brigham Young University. Institute of American Indian Services and Research
- Existence: 1971 - 1989
The Institute of American Indian Services and Research (1971-1989) provided Native Americans with educational opportunities and resources.
The Institute of Lamanite Research and Services, also known as the Institute of American Indian Studies and Research, was renamed the Institute of American Indian Services and Research in 1971. Spencer W. Kimball suggested the name change in order to shift the program's emphasis from researching or studying Native Americans to serving them. The Institute remained affiliated with Brigham Young University, but in 1972 it was transferred from the General College to the Division of Continuing Education, where it continued to extend educational opportunities to Native Americans in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Brigham Young University replaced the institute with Native American Educational Outreach Programs on September 1, 1989. The original program broke off from the university and now operates independently as American Indian Services, a non-profit charity organization.
