Doctor of Education (Ed.D.)
In the United States, despite the large number and a seeming variety in types of colleges and universities, most people hold an image of the typical college, and most innovative institutions are variations on that theme. A truly different institution, however, challenges our assumptions about numerous aspects of higher education.;A tribal college without a tribe, a "university" offering only two-year degrees, an institution that values a Celestial Wheel as much as a biology laboratory: D-Q University is unique. This study attempts to answer basic descriptive questions about this institution, through analysis of documents, observation of the facilities and classes, and interviews with administrators, faculty, and students. The study also attempts to analyze how an institution so different from the norm must operate in order to survive.
