Administrative History

Native American Educational Outreach Programs (1989-2011) was a program affiliated with Brigham Young University that provided educational support services to Native Americans.

Native American Educational Outreach Programs replaced the Institute of American Indian Services and Research on September 1, 1989. The new program was part of Brigham Young University's Division of Continuing Education. It focused more explicitly on promoting education and extending existing university services to service external programs. The program strived to promote the completion of high school and college education among Native Americans. In accordance with this goal, the Native American Educational Outreach Programs facilitated courses and workshops for Native American individuals and tribes. They serviced Native Americans in both the United States and Canada. Native American Educational Outreach Programs ended in May 2011.
