American Indian and Pacific Islander

Students from AIPI LLC smiling

The American Indian and Pacific Islander LLC provides a home for UCLA students to explore Native American and Pasifika identities that have ancestral land, federally recognized or not. On this big campus, this LLC provides a space where conversations about the Native and Pasifika Bruin experience are welcome, culture is celebrated, and knowledge about the Native and Pasifika identity is shared. This community is also engaged by sponsoring organizations like the American Indian Student Association (AISA) and Pacific Islanders’ Student Association (PISA) that offer retention and outreach services to ensure community members are kept in the loop on social events, de-stress events, and academic and cultural workshops happening at UCLA.

The American Indian and Pacific Islander LLC will be located in Dykstra Hall.

GE Cluster for Freshmen

As a first-year student in this LLC, you may want to enroll in Cluster 20: Race and Indigeneity in the US. Being part of the Cluster will allow you to bring your experiences from your LLC into the classroom with fellow LLC students. Cluster 20 looks at social and cultural themes that shape contemporary American life, explores the role of race in society today and the ways in which racial stereotypes are produced and challenged in popular culture. You’ll engage in active dialogue and debate to become culturally fluent in the new multiethnic complexities that have displaced the outdated black-white paradigm of U.S. race relations. You can find out more about the Clusters at the workshop on the First Year curriculum at your Orientation session, and your summer New Student Advisor can work with you to get you enrolled in Cluster 20.
