Health and Wellbeing

The American Indian and Indigenous Studies Program (AIISP) believes in the importance of having a space dedicated to our students. Our headquarters serves as a safe and welcoming environment for them to visit anytime during the year. We house academic and student service offices, a newly renovated undergraduate study lounge with computer lab, a graduate room, printing room, community kitchen, conference room, and library.

Undergraduate Study Lounge/ Computer Lab 

AIP students have access to the study lounge and computer lab during office hours (8:30 am- 4:30pm) with additional code access after hours. This newly renovated lounge comes equipped with a large round table, dry erase board, comfortable chairs, couch, magazine library, and four computer work stations that are connected to printers located in an adjacent room.

Graduate Rooms

AIP Graduate Students have 24-hour access to office space where they have assigned desks, as well as computers to work from. The graduate room is going to be renovated by Summer 2015 to provide an even better working environment for our students to actively engage in their studies.

Copy Machine/ Printing Services

AIP affiliated students and faculty have access to a copy machine where they can copy, scan, and print out work and class related materials. This service is free of charge for them as long as they do not abuse the privilege.

Conference Room/ Library

AIP has a conference room where many events such as class sessions, conferences and presentations take place. Additionally this room serves as home to our American Indian Studies library, which is a comprehensive collection of books that are available to AIP students for borrowing on a daily basis with extended due dates (depending on the title's popularity and a student's needs or research).
