California's only tribal college to shut doors for now

D-Q University, the only tribal college in California, will shut its doors for an unspecified period of time after losing its accreditation and running out of money.

Students were ordered to leave the dorms immediately. A notice said the school needs time to raise money.

Since the brouhaha, which came a week before classes were to begin this month, students have organized and called for the ouster of the school administration. Student leaders went to the California Nations Indian Gaming Association last week to raise some money and obtain the support of tribes.
