In past years, the section has continuously attempted to produce and utilize a university style of instruction. To further develop our existing program, in conjunction with other sections, we have produced a training and registration program that itemizes every delegate's history within the section, which will remain on-file for all future conclaves.


Conclave participants will receive a permanent ID number, which will serve as their identification number for Conclave 2005, and every future conclave within the section. Offered courses at all section conclaves will be taught through the sections newly adopted university, Machquigen University . Within the university are six colleges one may chose to attend:

•  College of Indian Affairs

•  College of Leadership and Program

•  College of Outdoor Adventure

•  College of General Studies

•  College for New Arrowmen

•  College of Professors


Starting last year, participants started earning associate's degree from a college of their choice. In future years, a participant can continue in the same college earning a bachelors degree or select another college to earn an associate's degree from. Once the participants complete the required courses, a degree will be printed in their name and a Machquigen University patch will be given to them, with a different color border for each degree. In 2003, everyone received a red-bordered patch, as an associate's degree. in 2004, qualifying members received a blue-bordered patch, as a bachelor's degree. In 2005, members who qualify will receive a green-bordered patch as a master's degree.


The College of Professors is limited to only those individuals training a session at the Conclave. Trainers may be anyone registered in the Order of the Arrow but must have the approval of the Section Chief and CVC of Training. Those selected to attend the College of Professors will receive a gold-bordered Machquigen University patch for their services.


A list of all training sessions can be found here within or on the section website. Please note that individuals registering on-line have priority selection with course registration. Many of the courses being offered do have a maximum attendance for the class. In the event a session that you registered for is full, you will be placed in another class from your selected college. Your final course schedule will be printed for you upon check-in.


Please note that in order to obtain a degree from your selected college of choice, you must attend a minimum of three classes from that college. You are more then welcome to change your classes at any time, if need be. If you have not selected three sessions from the same college, your degree will automatically be changed to the College of General Studies . If you have not specified any classes on your registration form, then you will be ineligible to obtain a degree from any of the colleges within Machquigen University . The training portion of conclave will take place Saturday morning. No other events and scheduled to take place during instruction.


If you are not registered for any sessions, you may show up to any course of your choice and your information will be changed in the section database.
