The primary function of the United Indian Students of Higher Education (UISHE), is the pursuit of educational enlightenment. UISHE members are both contributors to, and recipients of the educational process.

While working towards our own individual degrees, UISHE students have the opportunity to participate in university activities and local Native American cultural and social gatherings. UISHE keeps students and the community informed about current Native American activities and concerns. Involvement with the Native American society enables UISHE members to come together and help meet the needs of our indigenous people

Students who are recognized as Native American of a recognized affiliated tribe(s) or are adopted into the UISHE organization because of their interest in Native American culture, customs, and procices.

UISHE represents a diverse tribal membership throughout North America and is vital in supporting students with various tribal affiliations, ages and backgronds.

As a social organization,UISHE helps Native students become aware of not only their culture, but the cultures of other indigenous peoples as well. We meet regularly to handle business affairs and to coordinate upcoming events and group activities.
