Native American Student Organizations

An enjoyable part of the Cornell University experience is to participate in clubs and organizations. We  encourage  students to become involved  in one of the following organizations.

Graduate Students

  • Indigenous Graduate Student Association (IGSA)  which serves as a forum for graduate students to discuss cultural, social, political, and educational concerns,  and to network with other Native American  / Indigenous students.
  • Native American Law Student Association (NALSA) seeks to raise awareness in the Cornell community of legal issues affecting North American Indian Nations, and to bring scholars to campus to share their expertise on these issues.

Undergraduate Students

  • American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES) nurtures the building of community by bridging science and technology with traditional Native values.
  • Native American Students At Cornell (NASAC) provides a forum for students to discuss issues that concern Native peoples. The organization also promotes awareness of Native cultures, issues on campus and in the community through political, cultural and social events.
