American Indian Student Alliance

The American Indian Student Alliance is an NIC student organization comprised of active Native and non-Native students at NIC, Lewis-Clark State College and the University of Idaho with the commitment to celebrate Native American culture. We work together to support each other in educational pursuits and through life as a college student, and encourage members to be involved in leadership, social, educational and recreational events.

The AISA’s mission is written in its constitution and states the purpose of AISA shall be to:

  • Form a council representative of American Indian Student leaders and organizations.
  • Coordinate activities and opportunities of interest to American Indian students on campus.
  • Represent the interests of American Indian students at NIC, promote increased awareness of American Indian cultures and address issues of concern.
  • Develop a model of networking and cooperation among student leaders that creates and promotes professional and tribal networks for the future.
  • Manage fundraising for American Indian activities and events.
