WYANDOTTE, Okla. – The Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma announced on Wednesday that it has made the business decision to close N2N University. The Tribe’s Business Committee decided to have all current students finish their programs, performing an organized and orderly “Teach-Out”, in compliance with the Oklahoma Board of Private Vocational Schools (OBPVS) rules.
New enrollments are no longer being accepted. The final class will commence on July 23rd, 2018. After the Teach-Out finishes and all current students have had the opportunity to complete their programs of study, the school will be closed.
N2N University was the product of a two-year Federal Transportation Grant awarded to Grand Gateway Economic Development Association, partnering with the Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma to train economically disadvantaged adults and members of Native American Tribes to gain willful employment in high demand careers. Since N2N University’s first class in 2016, 10 students completed automotive training and 20 students completed commercial (truck) driving training. Approximately 93% of N2N University students found a job in their field upon graduation. The Tribe’s difficult decision was based on the fact that the Federal Transportation Grant will be ending July 31st, 2018.
Bobbie Wolf, N2N University’s Director, will stay on until September 30, 2018, to ensure that the closure runs smoothly. For more information, please contact Wolf by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
