Winds of Change Magazine

Winds of Change is the premier nationally distributed magazine published with a single-minded focus on career and educational advancement for American Indians/Alaska Natives/Native Hawaiians/First Nations, with an emphasis on STEM. Published five times a year by AISES, four print issues and one digital-only issue, Winds of Change print issues are now also available as digital editions. The digital editions offer readers the option of accessing each issue of the magazine online at any time throughout the year. Each year, 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 2016, Winds of Change introduced a new monthly newsletter, Pathways.  Winds of Change Pathways provides timely information for continued growth and success in STEM education and careers for Native Americans.  Every issue includes in-depth coverage of a career development topic for members, from pre-college to mature professional.  Pathways also provides current information from the AISES family on timely topics and upcoming events.
