Native & Indigenous Student Union


The Native and Indigenous Student Union (NISU) strives to cultivate community within a severely underrepresented group on campus. We prioritize relationships with faculty, staff, alumni, and local Indigenous communities to implement tactics for honoring and recognizing the institution's colonial history and the Kalapuya land we occupy. Additionally, we prioritize these relationships to call attention to the needs of current and future Indigenous students. Our group is currently shifting focuses away from an emphasis on education and awareness and is moving toward student-centered and student-led community building. This includes but is not limited to a number of members serving as student representatives on the Native American Advisory Council (NAAC).
