Officials plan to build a $33 million hotel on the United Tribes Technical College campus in Bismarck to provide a training opportunity for students and to help support the school governed by the five tribes in North Dakota.
United Tribes Technical College is getting just under $19 million in federal funding to lead a job training program in North Dakota and Montana. The money is part of $500 million going to community colleges around the country to support partnerships with employers and develop job training programs.
"I have long said the ‘Fighting Sioux’ case challenges North Dakota’s public institutions to extend 21st Century human rights standards to all of its citizens," said David Gipp, United Tribes Technical College president, in a statement released today. "It is unfortunate that American Indian students at UND have had to take this action to protect their own rights."
United Tribes Technical College is closely watching the budget battle in Washington. We have a strong interest in how the members of Congress and the president resolve their differences and pay for government for the remainder of this fiscal year.
But walking through the halls and classrooms, dodging construction equipment and cords along the way, David Gipp, president of UTTC, sees the potential the new science and technology center could have in training law enforcement officers to provide public safety services to Native American tribes.
