Welcome to the University of Arizona (UA), Native American Student Affairs (NASA) website! Please take some time to get to know about the efforts at the UA for our American Indian and Alaska Native students.
Whether you're a current student or would like to become a proud Wildcat, the UA NASA office is here to serve you and help you meet your academic goals. Beyond this, we'll ensure that your UA campus is a safe place for you to explore different facets of being a student and an American Indian leader. You should know that learning occurs outside the classroom, and it's our mission in NASA to help you ask questions, think critically and establish a foundation of knowledge, principle and well being to make you the best student you can be.
Over the past few years, UA NASA's office has begun to work more closely with outside units to ensure your complete acclimation and success. We work with the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid (OSFA), Academic Success and Achievement (ASA) with their Prodigy - First Year Scholars Program, Residence Life with their O'Odham Ki, American Indian themed residential community, and numerous other departments on campus. We are your 'one stop' location to ask questions and where we do not have the answers, we will ensure that you get the answers from one of our knowledgeable staff.
We are developing leadership programs to help you harness the knowledge you gain in the classroom to properly implement this into your lives. This fall we'll observe Native American Heritage Month, and it will be the campus community who learns from you as you are the reason we are here to begin with.
Please take some time to stop by and introduce yourself. We are located in the Nugent Building, Room 203.
As you visit campus, be sure to speak a word of thanks to the Tohono O'Odham and Pascua Yaqui peoples upon whose land we are guests here in Tucson. As guests and scholars we will build this community and continue the development of leaders for 'Indian Country'.
