AIISP is a CALS-based unit that provides Indigenous-related academic, student support and outreach services to Cornell University.
The American Indian and Indigenous Studies Program (AIISP) has been working with Cornell Admissions to open doors to promising futures for Haudenosaunee students, on whose homelands Cornell stands, and other North American and Indigenous students. We recruit qualified Indigenous applicants from all parts of the United States, Canada and across the globe. This recruitment is done through visits to high schools, academic conferences and national organizations.
