American Indian Faculty and Staff Association (AIFSA)


The objective of the American Indian Faculty and Staff Association is to help increase the recruitment and retention of faculty, staff and, by extension, students who identify as members of the Native and American Indian community. The intent is to build community, in addition to increasing visibility and awareness of Native issues throughout campus and in the larger Ames community. As a community, we will remain dedicated to empowering our indigenous and American Indian constituency here at Iowa State University.


Established in November 2015, this new group intends to host welcome receptions, socials, meals, professional development seminars, and other community-building and networking events for Native and American Indian faculty, staff, new students, and allies.
