AIP's Annual Welcome Back Picnic & Orientation for Incoming Students! August 29. 2015



The American Indian Program (AIP) at Cornell University welcomes you to the traditional homelands of the Cayuga People and the Haudenosaunee Confederacy at large. Steeped in the discourse of Indigeneity, AIP provides a unique combination of American Indian Studies courses and other educational, social, and cultural opportunities to Native students. We recruit Native applicants from all parts of the United States, Canada, and from across the globe, through regional efforts and national conferences. Our student support staff helps students and their parents with all aspects of the admissions process.
