College of Architecture and Planning

American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS)

This organization is most useful for second- through fifth-year students enrolled in the Department of Architecture, but AIAS is open to students of all majors. Since 1956, the organization has served as an official voice of students to the educational system and the profession. Community outreach includes the Freedom by Design initiative (see below), which teaches students how to resolve accessibility issues and gives them real-world connections and the experience of working with a client. Visit the AIAS Web site or contact the Department of Architecture at 765-285-1900.
