Expanding Native American course offerings at University of Maryland

The Student Government Association at the University of Maryland is demanding more Native American studies courses and the hiring of more faculty to teach them. But hiring more faculty members to teach new courses is unlikely in the near future due to a university-wide hiring freeze and the state’s dwindling budget.

Last spring, university administrators announced plans to cut the two existing Native American-focused courses — Film Images of Native Americans and Introduction to Native American Cultures of the United States — citing budget constraints, although they eventually yielded to student pressure to keep them.

  1. Budget constraints are always an excuse although the cost of attendance and the number of enrollments seems to continue to increase. So that leaves me wondering where is all the money really going?
