American Indian Student Services

​Welcome to CU Denver!

American Indian Student Services (AISS) welcomes all students of American Indian and Alaska Native heritages! AISS provides culturally responsive educational support services. Services include:

  • Academic guidance
  • Scholarship information
  • Cultural programs
  • Advocacy

AISS sponsors student organizations and referrals tailored to specific needs of Native students. We provide current information to the campus at large about issues and concerns of American Indian people.

 

American Indian and Alaska Native students at CU Denver represent a vast cross-section of tribal Nations and heritages. Tribal identity is complex and sometimes controversial. Most of the original tribal people were driven from Colorado or removed to reservations in other parts of the country. Many were relocated to this area during the 1960’s and 1970’s.

 

Today, more than 200 tribes reside in the Denver metro area. Several generations have been geographically distanced from their tribal homelands, yet retain tribal identities, cultures. Twenty percent speak Native languages. Only two federally recognized tribes remain within Colorado. These are the Southern Ute and the Ute Mountain Ute Tribes, located in the four corners area.

 

AISS serves both students that are tribally enrolled and those who identify but are not enrolled in their tribes.

 

Please stop by the American Indian Student Services office at North Classroom 2013 so that we can get to know you and learn how to best support your success at CU Denver! (303) 556-2860. Deborah.hunt@ucdenver.edu
