Haskell Foundation Sets Goal of $70 Million in Next 10 Years

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — A recently rejuvenated foundation for Haskell Indian Nations University in Lawrence is setting a lofty goal.  The Haskell Foundation says it hopes to raise $70 million in the next 10 years. So far, it has $250,000.  Executive Director Marisa Mendoza, who began the job in November, told the university's Board of Regents Wednesday that the foundation is working to get alumni reconnected to the school and to establish partnerships to help with advertising and fundraising.  The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the foundation was revived last year after more than a decade of inactivity.  Haskell President Venida Chenault says two of the school's biggest priorities are a new science and technology building and renovating the currently closed Hiawatha Hall, possibly into a center for graduate studies.
