Open New Doors for Yourself!
Come See What's New at SGU!
If you haven't already heard, Sinte Gleska University's Institute of Technologies, through their Allied Health program, is offering a new Home Health Technician Certificate!
Presently, as part of the Home Health Technician curriculum, SGU is registering students for the ALH 125 "Residential Home Cleaning" class, which is being offered during Summer Session II, June 29-July 24, 2015. The class will meet Monday-Thursday, 9-11 am. This class is a requirement to fulfill the Home Health Technician Certificate, and is only being offered this summer. It won't be offered in the Fall or Spring semesters. You have until June 26th to register.
What can you do with your Home Health Technician Certificate? You can provide services to home-bound or disabled individuals under the supervision of home care or social service agencies. Home Health Tech's can give meds, take vitals, give baths, clean and/or cook for their clients - in their home, community care facilities, hospitals, or at rehabilitation facilities.
Employment of Home Health Tech's are projected to grow by 50 percent between the years 2010 and 2018, which is much quicker than the average for all occupations. The expected growth is due to the projected rise in the number of elderly people, an age group that often has mounting health problems and that need assistance with daily activities. The elderly and other clients, such as the physically disabled, are increasingly relying on home care.
To get started on your Home Health Technician Certificate, which is a total of 30 credit hours and includes completing the CNA program, you will need a high school diploma/GED, and to register at the Registrar's Office at the SGU Student Services Building, Monday-Friday, 9am-4pm.
For more information, please call Michelle at the SGU~Allied Health office at (605) 856-8158 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.

SGU’s Human Services Department hosted a group of SDSU students and faculty April 13-14, 2015. The purpose of this visit was to acquaint our SDSU guests to our Tribal College students and learning environment.
The SDSU group consisted of ten M.A. level students who are studying student services, plus their professor, Ruth Harper. Ruth has been a friend of SGU’s Human Services Dept. for close to two decades. She assisted our own M.A. level program development and continues to visit with us on counseling curriculum and graduate education.
The SDSU bunch enjoyed a number of events while on campus. Dwayne Stenstrom Sr., joined by Danielle Spotted War Bonnet, presented on the topics of student needs and assistance programs. Human Services seniors Chelsea Wilson and Steve Scares Hawk informed the group about healing herbs, smudging, and proper prayer using the spirit plate. Chelsea and Steve shared sage and bitterroot tea along with sage bundles for all guests. Kevin “Hoch” DeCora, Human Services Dept. faculty member, led the group in tipi erection combined with a team building exercise. Midas Gunhammer presented information on student financial aid and registration matters. Other Human Services faculty members - Sheryl Klein, Julia Cahill, and Mary Ann Coupland – shared information on our SGU Human Services BA and MA degree programs along with other relevant topics.
The SDSU group, as a way to show their “wopila” (thanks), hosted a feed Monday evening for Human Services Dept. faculty and students. A second “wopila” involved trash pick-up Tuesday morning by Antelope Lake, close to SGU’s campus. Hoch DeCora facilitated that project; a pick up load of 20+ trash bags were gathered by the SDSU group.
All participants agreed this was a meaningful event that allowed us to showcase many positive elements of our Tribal College academic experience.
Attached to this article are a handful of pictures from the SDSU-SGU visit.
