Welcome! The American Indian Student Union is a student-run organization that strives to increase awareness of the Native community on Grounds. Our group promotes relationships with the surrounding Virginia Indian tribes, collaborates with other student organizations, holds cultural events relating to American Indians, and allows students and community members to join together to explore Native American heritage and identity.
The AISU welcomes all students, both Native and non-Native to join! Proof of federal and/or non-federal American Indian/Alaskan Native identity is not required for membership.
