American Indian Student Services (AISS) welcomes students of all American Indian and Alaska Native heritages! AISS serves both students who are tribally enrolled and those who identify but are not enrolled in their tribes.
AISS provides culturally responsive educational support:
CU Denver American Indian and Alaska Native students represent more than 100 different tribes. The Denver Indian Community is strong! Many families in Denver live far from tribal homelands, yet retain tribal identities and cultures. Twenty percent speak Native languages. The Southern Ute and the Ute Mountain Ute Tribes, located in the Four Corners area are the two federally-recognized tribes in Colorado.
Financial assistance is one of the critical supports needed to attract and retain American Indian students. Support native students at CU Denver by making a gift to the American Indian Scholarship Fund.
