American Indian Council

Purpose:
The American Indian Council is a student organization for all Native students and their families and is housed in the American Indian Student Center (AISC). AIC has been established in order to assist new and continuing students in their adjustment to college life, to promote academic success through group support, advocacy, leadership, to encourage other students to attend MSU-Bozeman, and to foster pride in cultural heritage. One attribute that sets the AIC apart from other student groups at MSU is the use of our cultural heritage that is utilized to foster pride, integrity, and achievement at the college level and beyond.
The AIC has been supported through its own fundraising efforts such as the Wonders In Native Generations and Societies (WINGS) collaboration with Bozeman School District, Bozeman’s Christmas Stroll, MSU’s International Food Bizarre, MSU’s Office of Student Engagement student organization funding sources, as well as through the annual AIC Pow Wow. Additionally MSU’s Department of Native American Studies provides a large source of funding via it’s endowments for the AIC annual Pow Wow. The AIC recently experienced food preparation changes implemented by MSU in 2014 which impeded on how the AIC has traditionally fund raised at the annual Pow Wow. These funds were used to provide the majority of the AIC initiatives and events such as the annual AIC Fall and Spring picnics, Thanks-mass Dinner, as well as many other AIC lead initiatives that addressed important social/academic/personal/profession/community development opportunities. The AIC is currently working with MSU to address the decline in fund raising options at the Pow Wow to strategize how best to work through these institutional changes.

Students Against Sexual Assault

Purpose:
Students Against Sexual Assault (SASA) is a club that focuses on and celebrates healthy relationships on the MSU campus and within the community. SASA members are students from a diverse range of backgrounds who stand together to speak out against all forms of violence. SASA believes education is a crucial part of prevention and actively seeks to increase awareness about stalking, relationship violence, and sexual assault. SASA's goal is to 1) eliminate these concerns from our community, and 2) create a caring and understanding environment for survivors. In accordance with this, SASA sponsors and hosts campus and community events including dances, speak outs, marches, art displays, and educational presentations. SASA members use their voices to create a positive impact in everyday conversations and at campus and community events. SASA stands up for its beliefs on individual as well as societal levels. Members are activists who have non-violent worldviews and stand strong in the face of adversity.

SASA is also responsible for raising money for the Survivor Fund which is managed by the Voice Center. The money goes directly toward victims of domestic violence, rape, stalking, and sexual assault both on campus and in Bozeman.
