In 2020, SDSU opened a 12,400-square-foot American Indian Student Center, which provides a "home away from home" environment and cultural activities.
The $4.5 million facility provides student support services, technology resources, office space and meeting rooms.
AISC is a standalone facility that exists to visibly acknowledge the university’s commitment to the American Indian higher education community. AISC staff members facilitate opportunities for academic and social support and provide cultural programming for American Indian undergraduate, graduate and professional students. Cultural programs include a Lakota language talking circle, beading and sewing circles and a men’s drum group—all promote holistic learning and community building, while reducing feelings of alienation. The AISC also serves as an entry point for students to explore aspects of their heritage.
