Welcome to the American Indian Institute(Aii) at Mesa Community College (MCC)! We are very pleased to be an important part of the Mesa learning community and accommodating the needs of our American Indian students is our highest priority. 

All 22 indigenous nations in Arizona are represented here, as well as countless other tribes throughout the country, and we love and appreciate the diversity and intelligence each student brings to our campus.

Additionally, we wish to acknowledge that our school lies on the ancestral lands of the Salt-River Pima and Gila River Indian tribes. As we are only guests here we encourage you to be thankful and respectful for the space we have been given to build and develop our learning environment and grow our AIC family within their community. 

We look forward to seeing you here and giving you our best.
