EXECUTIVE ORDER NO. 13021

Ex. Ord. No. 13021, Oct. 19, 1996, 61 F.R. 54929, as amended by

Ex. Ord. No. 13104, Oct. 19, 1998, 63 F.R. 56535, which established

the President's Board of Advisors on Tribal Colleges and

Universities and the White House Initiative on Tribal Colleges and

Universities in the Department of Education and required a

Five-Year Federal Plan regarding tribal colleges and universities,

was revoked by Ex. Ord. No. 13270, Sec. 10, July 3, 2002, 67 F.R.

45291, set out below.

EX. ORD. NO. 13270. TRIBAL COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES

Ex. Ord. No. 13270, July 3, 2002, 67 F.R. 45288, provided:

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution

and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered

as follows:

Section 1. Policy. There is a unique relationship between the

United States and Indian tribes, and a special relationship between

the United States and Alaska Native entities. It is the policy of

the Federal Government that this Nation's commitment to educational

excellence and opportunity must extend as well to the tribal

colleges and universities (tribal colleges) that serve Indian

tribes and Alaska Native entities. The President's Board of

Advisors on Tribal Colleges and Universities (the "Board") and the

White House Initiative on Tribal Colleges and Universities (WHITCU)

established by this order shall ensure that this national policy

regarding tribal colleges is carried out with direct accountability

at the highest levels of the Federal Government.

Tribal colleges are both integral and essential to their

communities. Often they are the only postsecondary institutions

within some of our Nation's poorest rural areas. They fulfill a

vital role: in maintaining and preserving irreplaceable languages

and cultural traditions; in offering a high-quality college

education to younger students; and in providing job training and

other career-building programs to adults and senior citizens.

Tribal colleges provide crucial services in communities that

continue to suffer high rates of unemployment and the resulting

social and economic distress.

The Federal Government's commitment to tribal colleges is

reaffirmed and the private sector can and should contribute to the

colleges' educational and cultural missions.

Finally, postsecondary institutions can play a vital role in

promoting excellence in early childhood, elementary, and secondary

education. The Federal Government will therefore work to implement

the innovations and reforms of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001

(Public Law 107-110) [see Short Title of 2002 Amendment note set

out under 20 U.S.C. 6301] in partnership with tribal colleges and

their American Indian and Alaska Native communities.

Sec. 2. Definition of Tribal Colleges and Universities. Tribal

colleges are those institutions cited in section 532 of the Equity

in Educational Land-Grant Status Act of 1994 (7 U.S.C. 301 note),

any other institution that qualifies for funding under the Tribally

Controlled Community College Assistance Act of 1978 [now Tribally

Controlled College or University Assistance Act of 1978] (25 U.S.C.

1801 et seq.), and Dine&233; College, authorized in the Navajo

Community College Assistance Act of 1978, Public Law 95-471, title

II (25 U.S.C. 640a note).

Sec. 3. Board of Advisors. (a) Establishment. There shall be

established in the Department of Education a Presidential advisory

committee entitled the President's Board of Advisors on Tribal

Colleges and Universities (the "Board").

(b) Membership. The Board shall consist of not more than 15

members who shall be appointed by the President, one of whom shall

be designated by the President as Chair. The Board shall include

representatives of tribal colleges and may also include

representatives of the higher, early childhood, elementary, and

secondary education communities; tribal officials; health,

business, and financial institutions; private foundations; and such

other persons as the President deems appropriate.

(c) Functions. The Board shall provide advice regarding the

progress made by Federal agencies toward fulfilling the purposes

and objectives of this order. The Board also shall provide

recommendations to the President, through the Secretary of

Education (Secretary), on ways the Federal Government can help

tribal colleges:

(1) use long-term development, endowment building, and planning

to strengthen institutional viability;

(2) improve financial management and security, obtain

private-sector funding support, and expand and complement Federal

education initiatives;

(3) develop institutional capacity through the use of new and

emerging technologies offered by both the Federal and private

sectors;

(4) enhance physical infrastructure to facilitate more

efficient operation and effective recruitment and retention of

students and faculty; and

(5) help implement the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 [see

Short Title of 2002 Amendment note set out under 20 U.S.C. 6301]

and meet other high standards of educational achievement.

(d) Meetings. The Board shall meet at least annually, at the

request of the Secretary, to provide advice and consultation on

tribal colleges and relevant Federal and private-sector activities,

and to transmit reports and present recommendations.

Sec. 4. White House Initiative on Tribal Colleges and

Universities. There shall be established in the Department of

Education, Office of the Secretary, the White House Initiative on

Tribal Colleges and Universities (WHITCU). The WHITCU shall:

(a) provide the staff support for the Board;

(b) assist the Secretary in the role of liaison between the

executive branch and tribal colleges; and

(c) serve the Secretary in carrying out the Secretary's

responsibilities under this order.

Sec. 5. Department and Agency Participation. Each participating

executive department and agency (agency), as determined by the

Secretary, shall appoint a senior official who is a full-time

officer of the Federal Government and who is responsible for

management or program administration. The official shall report

directly to the agency head, or to the agency head's designee, on

agency activity under this order and serve as liaison to the

WHITCU. To the extent permitted by law and regulation, each agency

shall provide appropriate information as requested by the WHITCU

staff pursuant to this order.

Sec. 6. Three-Year Federal Plan. (a) Content. Each agency

identified by the Secretary shall develop and implement a

Three-Year Plan of the agency's efforts to fulfill the purposes of

this order. These Three-Year Plans shall include annual performance

indicators and appropriate measurable objectives for the agency.

Among other relevant issues, the plans shall address how the agency

intends to increase the capacity of tribal colleges to compete

effectively for any available grants, contracts, cooperative

agreements, and any other Federal resources, and to encourage

tribal colleges to participate in Federal programs. The plans also

may emphasize access to high-quality educational opportunities for

economically disadvantaged Indian students, consistent with

requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 [see Short

Title of 2002 Amendment note set out under 20 U.S.C. 6301]; the

preservation and revitalization of tribal languages and cultural

traditions; and innovative approaches to better link tribal

colleges with early childhood, elementary, and secondary education

programs. The agency's performance indicators and objectives should

be clearly reflected in the agency's annual budget submission to

the Office of Management and Budget. To facilitate the attainment

of these performance indicators and objectives, the head of each

agency identified by the Secretary, shall provide, as appropriate,

technical assistance and information to tribal colleges regarding

the program activities of the agency and the preparation of

applications or proposals for grants, contracts, or cooperative

agreements.

(b) Submission. Each agency shall submit its Three-Year Plan to

the WHITCU. In consultation with the Board, the WHITCU shall then

review these Three-Year Plans and develop an integrated Three-Year

Plan for Assistance to Tribal Colleges, which the Secretary shall

review and submit to the President. Agencies may revise their

Three-Year Plans within the three-year period.

(c) Annual Performance Reports. Each agency shall submit to the

WHITCU an Annual Performance Report that measures the agency's

performance against the objectives set forth in its Three-Year

Plan. In consultation with the Board, the WHITCU shall review and

combine Annual Performance Reports into one annual report, which

shall be submitted to the Secretary for review, in consultation

with the Office of Management and Budget.

Sec. 7. Private Sector. In cooperation with the Board, the WHITCU

shall encourage the private sector to assist tribal colleges

through increased use of such strategies as:

(a) matching funds to support increased endowments;

(b) developing expertise and more effective ways to manage

finances, improve information systems, build facilities, and

improve course offerings; and

(c) increasing resources for and training of faculty.

Sec. 8. Termination. The Board shall terminate 2 years after the

date of this order unless the Board is renewed by the President

prior to the end of that 2-year period.

Sec. 9. Administration. (a) Compensation. Members of the Board

shall serve without compensation, but shall be allowed travel

expenses, including per diem in lieu of subsistence, as authorized

by law for persons serving intermittently in Government service (5

U.S.C. 5701-5707).

(b) Funding. The Board and the WHITCU shall be funded by the

Department of Education.

(c) Administrative Support. The Department of Education shall

provide appropriate administrative services and staff support for

the Board and the WHITCU. With the consent of the Department of

Education, other agencies participating in the WHITCU shall provide

administrative support (including detailees) to the WHITCU

consistent with statutory authority. The Board and the WHITCU each

shall have a staff and shall be supported at appropriate levels

commensurate with that of similar White House Initiative Offices.

(d) General Provisions. Insofar as the Federal Advisory Committee

Act, as amended (5 U.S.C. App.) (the "Act"), may apply to the

administration of any portion of this order, any functions of the

President under the Act, except that of reporting to the Congress,

shall be performed by the Secretary of Education in accordance with

the guidelines issued by the Administrator of General Services.

Sec. 10. Revocation. Executive Order 13021 of October 19, 1996,

as amended, is revoked.

Sec. 1811. Grant adjustments

-STATUTE-

(a) Formula for allocation

(1) If the sums appropriated for any fiscal year pursuant to

section 1810(a)(2) of this title for grants under section 1807 of

this title are not sufficient to pay in full the total amount which

approved applicants are eligible to receive under such section for

such fiscal year -

(A) the Secretary shall first allocate to each such applicant

which received funds under section 1807 of this title for the

preceding fiscal year an amount equal to 95 percent of the

payment received by such applicant under section 1808 of this

title;

(B) the Secretary shall next allocate to applicants who did not

receive funds under such section for the preceding fiscal year an

amount equal to 100 per centum of the product of -

(i) the per capita payment for the preceding fiscal year; and

(ii) the applicant's projected Indian student count for the

academic year for which payment is being made;

in the order in which such applicants have qualified for

assistance in accordance with such section so that no amount

shall be allocated to a later qualified applicant until each

earlier qualified applicant is allocated an amount equal to such

product; and

(C) if additional funds remain after making the allocations

required by subparagraphs (A) and (B), the Secretary shall

allocate such funds by -

(i) ratably increasing the amounts of the grants determined

under subparagraph (A) until such grants are equal to 100 per

centum of the product described in such subparagraph; and

(ii) then ratably increasing the amounts of both (I) the

grants determined under subparagraph (A), as increased under

clause (i) of this subparagraph, and (II) the grants determined

under subparagraph (B).

(2) For purposes of paragraph (1) of this subsection, the term

"per capita payment" for any fiscal year shall be determined by

dividing the amount available for grants to tribally controlled

colleges or universities under section 1807 of this title for such

fiscal year by the sum of the Indian student counts of such

colleges or universities for such fiscal year. The Secretary shall,

on the basis of the most satisfactory data available, compute the

Indian student count for any fiscal year for which such count was

not used for the purpose of making allocations under this

subchapter.

(b) Ratable reduction or increase in funds available for existing

schools; excess funds; definition

(1) If the sums appropriated for any fiscal year for grants under

section 1807 of this title are not sufficient to pay in full the

total amount of the grants determined pursuant to subsection

(a)(1)(A) of this section, the amount which applicants described in

such subsection are eligible to receive under section 1807 of this

title for such fiscal year shall be ratably reduced.

(2) If any additional funds become available for making payments

under section 1807 of this title for any fiscal year to which

subsection (a) of this section or paragraph (1) of this subsection

applies, such additional amounts shall be allocated by first

increasing grants reduced under paragraph (1) of this subsection on

the same basis as they were reduced and by then allocating the

remainder in accordance with subsection (a) of this section. Sums

appropriated in excess of the amount necessary to pay in full the

total amounts for which applicants are eligible under section 1807

of this title shall be allocated by ratably increasing such total

amounts.

(3) References in this subsection and subsection (a) of this

section to section 1807 of this title shall, with respect to fiscal

year 1983, be deemed to refer to section 1806 of this title as in

effect at the beginning of such fiscal year.

(c) Reallocation of funds

In any fiscal year in which the amounts for which grant

recipients are eligible to receive have been reduced under the

first sentence of subsection (a) of this section, and in which

additional funds have not been made available to pay in full the

total of such amounts under the second sentence of such subsection,

each grantee shall report to the Secretary any unused portion of

received funds ninety days prior to the grant expiration date. The

amounts so reported by any grant recipient shall be made available

for reallocation to eligible grantees on a basis proportionate to

the amount which is unfunded as a result of the ratable reduction,

but no grant recipient shall receive, as a result of such

reallocation, more than the amount provided for under section

1807(a) of this title.

CHAPTER 20 - TRIBALLY CONTROLLED COLLEGE OR UNIVERSITY ASSISTANCE

SUBCHAPTER I - TRIBALLY CONTROLLED COLLEGES OR UNIVERSITIES GRANT

PROGRAM

-HEAD-

Sec. 1813. Construction of new facilities

-STATUTE-

(a) Grants

With respect to any tribally controlled college or university for

which the report of the Secretary under section 1812(a) of this

title identifies a need for new construction, the Secretary shall,

subject to appropriations and on the basis of an application

submitted in accordance with such requirements as the Secretary may

prescribe by regulation, provide grants for such construction in

accordance with this section.

(b) Eligibility requirements

In order to be eligible for a grant under this section, a

tribally controlled college or university -

(1) must be a current recipient of grants under section 1805 or

1807 of this title, and

(2) must be accredited by a nationally recognized accrediting

agency listed by the Secretary of Education pursuant to the last

sentence of section 1001 of title 20, except that such

requirement may be waived if the Secretary determines that there

is a reasonable expectation that such college or university will

be fully accredited within eighteen months. In any case where

such a waiver is granted, grants under this section shall be

available only for planning and development of proposals for

construction.

(c) Maximum amount of grant; waiver of restriction

(1) Except as provided in paragraph (2), grants for construction

under this section shall not exceed 80 per centum of the cost of

such construction, except that no tribally controlled college or

university shall be required to expend more than $400,000 in

fulfillment of the remaining 20 per centum. For the purpose of

providing its required portion of the cost of such construction, a

tribally controlled college or university may use funds provided

under section 13 of this title.

(2) The Secretary may waive, in whole or in part, the

requirements of paragraph (1) in the case of any tribally

controlled college or university which demonstrates that neither

such college or university nor the tribal government with which it

is affiliated have sufficient resources to comply with such

requirements. The Secretary shall base a decision on whether to

grant such a waiver solely on the basis of the following factors:

(A) tribal population; (B) potential student population; (C) the

rate of unemployment among tribal members; (D) tribal financial

resources; and (E) other factors alleged by the college or

university to have a bearing on the availability of resources for

compliance with the requirements of paragraph (1) and which may

include the educational attainment of tribal members.

(d) Failure to use facility in approved manner; title to vest in

United States; settlement

If, within twenty years after completion of construction of a

facility which has been constructed in whole or in part with a

grant made available under this section -

(1) the facility ceases to be used by the applicant in a public

or nonprofit capacity as an academic facility, unless the

Secretary determines that there is good cause for releasing the

institution from this obligation, and

(2) the tribe with which the applicant is affiliated fails to

use the facility for a public purpose approved by the tribal

government in furtherance of the general welfare of the community

served by the tribal government,

title to the facility shall vest in the United States and the

applicant (or such tribe if such tribe is the successor in title to

the facility) shall be entitled to recover from the United States

an amount which bears the same ratio to the present value of the

facility as the amount of the applicant's contribution (excluding

any funds provided under section 13 of this title) bore to the

original cost of the facility. Such value shall be determined by

agreement of the parties or by action brought in the United States

district court for the district in which such facility is located.

(e) Religious use

No construction assisted with funds under this section shall be

used for religious worship or a sectarian activity or for a school

or department of divinity.

(f) "Construction" and "academic facilities" defined

For the purposes of this section -

(1) the term "construction" includes reconstruction or

renovation (as such terms are defined in the first sentence of

subparagraph (B) of section 1132e-1(2) (!1) of title 20); and

(2) the term "academic facilities" has the meaning provided

such term under section 1132e-1(1) (!1) of title 20.
