Haskell

Lawrence is also home to Haskell Indian Nations University, the oldest intertribal university in the U.S. whose admission is open to members of federally recognized tribal nations. Haskell opened in 1884 as an elementary school with just 22 students. Today, Haskell has evolved into a university that offers 12 associate's degrees as well as baccalaureate degrees in elementary education, business administration, environmental science, and American Indian studies. With more than 1,000 students, Haskell’s community represents a diverse body of tribes.

Haskell's campus includes 12 buildings listed in the National Register of Historic Landmarks, numerous sculptures and murals, and several annual cultural and academic events. Sites of interest on the campus include the American Indian Athletic Hall of Fame located in Stidham Union, Haskell Memorial Stadium/Arch, the Garden of Healing, Medicine Wheel Earth Work and the Haskell Cultural Center. Visit Haskell’s website for more information.

Haskell/KU Exchange Program
The purpose of the Haskell/KU Exchange Program is to give students at the University of Kansas an opportunity to take a class at Haskell Indian Nations University. KU students will enroll at KU but take the class on the Haskell campus. KU students will pay KU tuition and fees, must be in good academic standing, provide own transportation, abide by the Haskell academic calendar, and purchase textbooks and other materials from the Haskell campus shop.

Learn more about the Exchange Program here.

Research Protocol for Joint Work with Haskell
Any KU faculty, staff, and students interested in joint research-related studies with faculty, staff, or students at Haskell Indian Nations University should contact Freda Gipp in the Office of the President at HINU. She coordinates all such work and is aware of plans already in progress. She can be reached at 785-749-8407 or fgipp@haskell.edu.
