Winds of Change is the premier nationally distributed magazine published with a single-minded focus on career and educational advancement for American Indians and Alaska Natives, with an emphasis on STEM. Published quarterly by AISES, Winds of Change is now available in both print and digital editions. The digital version offers readers the option of accessing each entire issue of the magazine online at any time throughout the year. In addition to the quarterly magazine, Winds of Change releases an annual Special College Issue that features the Top 200 Colleges for Native Americans. The Special College Issue has come to be viewed as a crucial resource for students, counselors, and college recruiters alike. In addition to the digital edition of each issue of Winds of Change magazine, two popular digital guides, the Job Hunting Guide and the Professional and Academic Development Guide, are offered biannually.
Winds of Change
The annual Special College Issue of Winds of Change is now available both in print and digital editions, with articles designed to inform and inspire college-bound students and their parents, teachers, and counselors, most notably our list of the Top 200 Colleges for Native Americans.
It’s packed with information for students and their families and counselors. Especially useful is our roster of the Top 200 Colleges for Native Americans. Unlike any other “best schools” list, we focus on schools in every state that are notably supportive of their indigenous students. To rate the schools we look at data that measures indicators like student life, curriculum, financial aid, support services, and graduation rates.
The Special College Issue also includes profiles of a range of colleges and universities so you can get a closer look at some of the many opportunities out there for an enriching academic experience. And you can hear firsthand from other students talking about their own experiences in school. Feature articles in this issue are also school focused. One takes a look at medical schools and includes the experiences and viewpoints of several Native American physicians. Another focuses on schools that offer programs in green energy fields. Be sure to check out this overview of colleges, programs, and what it’s like to be on a STEM path in higher education.
The next regular issue will be the Fall Conference Issue — available in print and online as a digital edition at aises.org — with its preview of the AISES National Conference coming up November 13–15 in Orlando. We’ll have the highpoints of what to look for at this can’t-miss get-together as well as an introduction to the keynote speakers and the winners of the prestigious AISES Professional Awards. Feature articles include a look at a current assessment of tribal forests and, in the field of education, meeting the challenge of encouraging students to stick with STEM. In addition, we’ll have profiles of AISES members, news of members and chapters, and much more.
The Fall Digital Issue, focusing on academic and professional development, is now available. Look for articles on topics like the mentor advantage, project management, steps to graduate school success, and finding funding for higher education. All the content in this issue is geared to inform and inspire both students and rising professionals who want to advance along their STEM paths.
