90-000 COMMUNITY AND ORGAIZATIONAL RELATIONS GOALS AND OBJECTIVES (POLICY) In an effort to ensure and enhance the possibilities for excellence in the education of our students in a free society, the Board presents and endorses this statement of policy on college and community relations because of its conviction that: 1. The college is only as strong as, and no stronger than, the intelligent and informed support of the people of the community; and, 2. The support of the people must be based upon their knowledge of, their understanding about, and their participation in the aims and efforts of the college. The design and intent of the Board is to: 1. Keep the citizens of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation regularly and thoroughly informed through all the channels of communication of all the policies, programs, problems, and planning of the college system, and to carry out this policy through it's own efforts and the office of the president. 2. Invite the advice and counsel of the people of the reservation. 3. Solicit the sound thinking and studied counsels of the people through advisory committees selected from the community and appointed by the Board of Trustees to consider those problems which vitally affect the future of our students.
