The American Indian and Indigenous Studies Program (AIISP) at Cornell University is here to support our students throughout their academic careers. Since 1975, we have helped hundreds of Native American Students reach their educational goals. Our students obtain undergraduate, graduate, and professional degrees in subjects from architecture, to nutritional science, to zoology. We are also a source of education about the cultures of North American Indians, enabling both Native and non-Native students to develop respect for and an understanding of Indigenous world views through our curriculum in American Indian and Indigenous Studies (AIIS). The program extends Cornell resources to American Indian and Indigenous communities and creates forums to educate others about American Indian and Indigenous issues.
