Navajo Technical University (NTU) is one of the premier institutions of higher education in the Navajo Nation, providing a unique balance among science, engineering, technology, tradition, and identity rooted in the Diné Philosophy of Education: Nitsahakees, Nahata, Iina, and Siihasin.

This project, the Vision for Excellence at NTU in Research and Education in STEM (VENTURES), is a partnership between NTU and the National Science Foundation funded Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) at Harvard University.

The goals of this partnership are to:

  • increase the number of Native Americans earning undergraduate degrees in STEM fields,
  • increase the research infrastructure at NTU so that students and faculty can perform research within their own community,
  • increase the number of Native Americans entering and completing graduate programs in materials science and related fields, and
  • include Native American perspectives and methods of inquiry in materials science research.

 

The two materials research areas in this award are relevant to health and environmental issues that are of immediate importance to the Navajo Nation.

 

ventures home 1
Research area 1 will focus on developing materials and techniques for the electrochemical detection of low concentrations of pollutants such as heavy metals and disease biomarkers such as glucose. This research area is motivated by the long history of uranium mining on the Navajo Nation, as well as more recent extraction activities, such as fracking. Low-cost electrochemical detection can also be used to monitor health issues like obesity and type 2 diabetes on the Navajo Nation.
 
 
Research area 2, which will study mechanical properties of cell membranes, will help to address a growing health concern for the Navajo people - a rising incidence of high cholesterol and associated coronary disease. Collaborative research teams in research area 1 will fabricate and test electrodes for detection of mining contaminants, and develop microfluidics-based laboratory models for flow and detection of contaminants through soil. Research area 2 will investigate the ability of phytosterols to act as cholesterol surrogates and how they modify the sterol profile of mammalian cell membranes, as well as examine the resulting membrane biophysical properties (using capillary microfluidic techniques).
ventures home 2
 
 
ventures home 3
By linking each research area to an issue of concern to the Navajo people, this team will be able to achieve the objectives of increasing enrollment in STEM fields at NTU, and will inspire students to continue to graduate research in materials and related fields. In addition, the highly accessible research techniques can be readily adapted into courses at NTU and outreach activities to the Navajo Nation, incorporating cultural knowledge and practices.

Resources for COVID-19 Disruptions

With the spread of COVID-19, NTU has moved classes online. Below, courtesy of the Tribal College Journal, you will find an annotated bibliography on best practices for teaching online. Thanks to TCJ's Editor, Brad Shreve!


 

Another important resource is from Moodle – NTU's online Learning Management System. Check out "Learn Moodle Basics" at: https://learn.moodle.org/

 

Program Assessment
Assessment is the process of establishing learning goals, providing learning opportunities, assessing student learning, and using results to implement improvements. The process is ongoing. It follows the logic of the Life Principles of Diné Philosophy of Education: Nitsáhákees (critical thinking), Nahat’á (planning), Iiná (implementation), and Sih Hasin (reflection). This takes place for every certificate and degree program.

General Education
General Education is the foundation for all degree and certificate programs. It provides students with knowledge, skills, attributes, and values needed to learn actively, communicate clearly, think critically, creatively, and reflectively, and to interact effectively in diverse environments. General Education helps students become independent, critical thinkers, competent in their chosen professions by possessing a solid foundation in math, English, laboratory, social and behavioral sciences, communication, and information technology.

 

Program Revisions
NTU's GenEd program is undergoing revision. Faculty are aligning the program to new requirements of the New Mexico Higher Education Department.

 

General Education Program Assessment Plan 2019-20
Assessment of the GenEd program will take place one goal/semester at a time. Data summaries of direct and indirect measures as outlined above will be compiled on an annual basis by the University's Offices of Assessment and Institutional Research. An annual summary that includes recommendations for program improvement will be prepared by the Student Learning Committee and included in the University's Annual Student Learning Report. Curriculum revisions as needed will be designed by the General Education Committee and reviewed and approved by the Faculty Congress.

Co-curricular Programming and Assessment 2020
The goal of Co-Curricular Student Learning and Development at NTU is to provide value to Diné communities through research, community engagement, and service learning projects, and projects that foster cultural preservation, environmental sustainability, and economic development.

Co-Curricular activities are organized by faculty members as course assignments for course credit, and by faculty sponsors in student organizations. Projects require at least ten hours of out-of-class participation and are assessed through a reflective essay or survey.

Students who complete an end-of-project survey do so using an online instrument. Data are organized by the Student Learning Coordinator. Copies of students’ reflective essays are submitted to the Student Learning Coordinator for program improvement analysis. The CCP is overseen and improved annually by NTU’s Student Learning Committee.

Faculty Responsibility for Student Projects
All research involving human subjects conducted by students are to be supervised by a faculty member and be reviewed and approved by the Committee on Institution Research prior to initiation. Investigators may not solicit subject participation or begin data collection until they have received written approval from the CIR.

The faculty advisor has the responsibility for (1) making the decision whether student research activities involving human participants meet eligibility for CIR review; (2) overseeing all research related activities; and (3) assuring that ethical principles are adhered to in the conduct of the project.

An example: consider a student who undertakes an individual or class project that does not involve a vulnerable population and involves no risk to the subjects of the study. The student delivers a presentation on campus (e.g., poster or showcase session or an oral presentation before faculty and peers.) This project would not require CIR review. However, if the results of this otherwise "no or low-risk" project may/might be disseminated at a professional conference, submitted for publication, or published on the World Wide Web, government regulations require prior review by CIR.

Generally, student research involving human subjects falls into one of two categories, only one of which requires CIR Review:

 

 

Regulations:
Title 45 Code of Federal Regulations Part 46 (45 CFR 46) Protection of Human Subjects specifies federal regulations for the conduct of research involving human subjects. All human subjects research at Navajo Technical University must be conducted in accordance with 45CFR46. Regulations are available at http://www.hhs.gov/ohrp/humansubjects/guidance/45cfr46.html

(Ref: 21 CFR Part 312, 812, 45 CFR 46.101(b)(4), (b)(3), 45 CFR 46.402(a), 63 FR 60364-60367, November 9, 1998.)

 

 

 

NTU is partnering with SUN PATH and WICHE ICE. This opportunity provides quality online course sharing that ensures our students access a variety of online courses to help them stay on track to graduate. The partnership offers NTU access to the many Higher Learning online courses within the State of New Mexico and the region. Vice-versa, other Universities and Colleges would be able to enroll in our online courses. This helps with articulation and course sharing, which will help in cost savings, and ensuring our students graduate on time. All SUN ONLINE courses are Quality Matters (QM) certified which means NTU plans to offer QM certified courses as well. This is a huge advantage and opportunity for NTU.

 

sunPath

SUN PATH is a consortium of New Mexico public colleges sharing quality online courses to ensure that students have access to a variety of courses, certificates, and degree programs. We are dedicated to excellence in online learning and professional development for faculty who teach online and committed to increasing access to quality online education for students across New Mexico.

 

wicheIce

WICHE ICE enables students, through their home institutions, to seamlessly access high quality online courses and programs offered by other four-year and two-year ICE member institutions. The collaborative model fosters faculty engagement, resource sharing, and innovation.

 

NEW MEXICO SUN ONLINE powered by WICHE ICE: Online Course Sharing System
SUN Online is a coursesharing statewide system that provides New Mexico students, from participating colleges and universities, to have greater access to quality online courses and programs across the state.

Through this system students have the opportunity to take classes from other institutions in the state that articulate their programs of study, while remaining enrolled in their home institution.

Colleges benefit with less duplication of courses, resources and programs and employers benefit with increased responsiveness and reduced time-to-market for local and regional training needs.

An online course catalogue with all courses shared by participating institutions can be accessed at http://www.wiche-ice.org.

Navajo Technical University's (NTU) Adult Education Program offers classes and tutoring to help adult learners to build basic academic skills to prepare to take GED test to attain a high school equivalency diploma. The Program also provides students evidence of readiness to enter job training programs or college. The NTU ABE/GED Program mission statement is "Adult Basic Education is committed to adult learners to enter higher levels of self-reliance and employment opportunities. With the knowledge obtained, adult students will exercise choices and options with effective and productive lifestyles based on Diné cultural principles: Nitsáhákees, Nahat'á, Iiná, and Sihasin."

The NTU ABE/GED Program complies with the State of New Mexico GED requirements including:

  • Must be 16 or 17 years of age if you meet the following expectations:
  • Obtain and submit a permission form with consent from local school District as well as from parents or guardian. One does not need to live in New Mexico to take the GED test with the Program.
  • Must complete the pre-post tests and practice test after spending a certain amount of prescribed time required by the Program
  • The Program does not require that a student takes a GED Practice Test prior to taking an Official GED Test, however, it is recommended that a Practice Test be taken to ensure preparedness and readiness to take the Official Test.

The New GED 2014 Testing started in January 2014, and administered on computers call Computer Based Testing (CBT). The new generation of testing will be harder to pass and will include four components and will require all candidates to improve or develop their basic computer literacy skills. Four (4) subjects in the New GED Test are:

  • Reading, Language, Arts (RLA) — (150 minutes)
    Writing and Reading are combined as RLA.
  • Mathematical Reasoning — (120 minutes)
  • Science — (90 minutes)
  • Social Studies — (95 minutes)

Students must register to schedule to test which will require mandatory GED Orientation scheduled by the Program Instructors. Students will schedule testing when referred by the Instructor.

All prior ABE/GED Program testing scores and records were erased during November 2013, and cannot be used as credit toward your diploma.
