“Centering Indigenous Knowledge in Academia”
Cornell’s American Indian Program (AIP) and Akwe:kon are the legacy of a generation of scholars, administrators, students and community members who worked hard to build a program that would live up to the ideals of inclusion that the University upholds.
Through the American Indian Studies’ Minor, the American Indian Program seeks to elevate the next generation of students to leadership positions in the way they learn to respond to the needs of indigenous communities experience. It provides not only the opportunity to be part of and shape the AIP community but also the critical intellectual space and place where the thinking and experiences are shaped from within the multiple indigenous perspectives.
Both Cornell and AIP provide a wide range of opportunities and support of undergraduate students, which include both academic/career advisement and funding options. Also, it is the philosophy of the Graduate School to offer full funding to the admitted Ph.D. students.
