Upcoming AIIS Events


The American Indian & Indigenous Studies (AIIS) Program works to foster an environment in which the university community can discover, examine, and appreciate the cultures, traditions, and values that reflect the many contributions American Indians have made and continue to make to the quality of life in contemporary society. We provide information, referral, and consultation, and we seek to develop leadership among American Indian and Indigenous students to enhance their academic success and assist them in becoming involved in contributing to their communities. An essential component of our mission is to focus attention towards and improve the lives of the Indigenous peoples of Wisconsin.
