We aim to substantially increase the representation of American Indian and Alaskan Native students in
engineering, science and other related technology disciplines by promoting a learning atmosphere that encourages professionalism and academic success.
Stanford’s chapter of the American Indian Science and Engineering was established in 1983 with the support of four members of the Stanford American Indian Organization (SAIO)
. Since Stanford's AISES chapter was established, our members have been active in the Indigenous STEM community at Stanford, as well as other programs in the Stanford Native community. Stanford University AISES maintains membership with AISES National in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and our chapter is dedicated to the principles of AISES National, which include improving Indigenous education and increasing the number of Native scientists and engineers.
