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.

Administrative History

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.
