The American Indian Student Cultural Center (AISCC) is requesting applications for the 2012-2013 AISCC Board. They are looking for board members who are interested in contributing to the broader American Indian community, and the University of Minnesota community. Students from all backgrounds are invited to run for a seat on the 2012-2013 AISCC board.
The AISCC board plans and hosts several events through the year. Annual events include the Honoring American Indian Women Luncheon, Winter Storytelling, fall and spring powwows, and American Indian Heritage Week. Also, AISCC hosts other smaller events throughout the year, and each month host Frybread Fryday. Each event that is hosted includes cultural and educational opportunities for students, staff, and faculty.
Board members have the opportunity to plan and execute many events that support the mission of the AISCC, and encourage students to learn more about American Indian cultures. Board members also have unique experiences allowing them to work with and form relationships with members of the broader American Indian community.
If you are interested in holding a seat on the board, please fill out the questionnaire (at the bottom of the post!). The questionnaire will allow those voting to get to know you, and make an informed choice about who will represent the AISCC during the 2012-2013 school year. Please submit the questionnaire by 6:00pm Friday, April 20th, to the AISCC (Located in Coffman Memorial Union, Rm 204) or Emmy Her Many Horses (firstname.lastname@example.org).
