Haskell undertaking nearly $4 million in campus improvements


Haskell Indian Nations University is coming off one of its busiest summers in a long time.

This semester, Haskell students and staff are enjoying the results of nearly $4 million worth of improvements to campus facilities completed — or almost completed — over summer break.

“It was like a major vortex on our campus,” said Tonia Salvini, vice president of university services.

More than $800,000 from U.S. Department of Education Title III funds for student retention efforts went toward new furniture and flooring in Haskell’s residence halls and Curtis Hall, said Stephen Prue, executive assistant to the president. Curtis, the dining hall where most of Haskell’s 805 students eat three meals daily, now boasts a shiny dark wood-laminate floor, purple booths, new tables and chairs emblazoned with the Haskell Indian mascot.
