About Us

The American Indian Program (AIP) is here to support your dreams - any dreams you may have.

Since 1975, the American Indian Program at Cornell University has helped more than 400 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 worldviews through our curriculum in American Indian Studies. The program extends Cornell resources to American Indian communities and creates forums to educate others about American Indian issues.
