CEIAS Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice Resources
In order to support students, staff, and faculty NAU and CEIAS offer several excellent resources from academic support to advocacy and social justice.
NAU Resource Centers
The Center for University Access and Inclusion is the hub for coordinating diversity and inclusion efforts across NAU. The center seeks to facilitate joint programming, grants, and new opportunities for faculty and other qualified individuals to conduct research, which will inform compliance activities and contribute to best practices in higher education.
The Equity and Access Office (EAO) ensures the university is meeting its obligations regarding: affirmative action in employment, equal opportunity, non-discrimination and harassment, accessibility and reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities.
The Office of Inclusion: Multicultural & LGBTQIA Student Services welcomes students to our inclusive campus community where we support cultural, gender and sexuality diversity through programming, events, and thoughtful community engagement in a safe and supportive environment.

Native American Resources
- Office of Native American Initiatives (ONAI) – The Office of Native American Initiatives (ONAI) was established to make this mission a reality. ONAI seeks to make a substantial and enduring contribution to a new era in American Indian self-determination by: partnering with Native American communities, collaborating with tribal colleges and universities, contributing to a culture of support for Native American students, and building bridges to and from Indigenous-serving institutions across the globe
- Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals (ITEP) – ITEP was created to act as a catalyst among tribal governments, research and technical resources at Northern Arizona University (NAU), various federal, state and local governments, and the private sector, in support of environmental protection of Native American natural resources. ITEP was established at NAU in 1992, in cooperation with USEPA. ITEP accomplishes its mission through several programs.
- Native American Cultural Center (NACC) – The Native American Cultural Center is a visible and celebrated facility located in the heart of NAUs Flagstaff campus, which creates a platform for Native American and Indigenous cultures, traditions, perspectives, and contributions. Through the center, students can interact with peers, seek academic support, and feel pride in their university involvement, whether they are on campus or linking to the university through extended campus programs.
- Office of Indigenous Student Success (OISS) – Provides individualized support in a caring and professional environment that respects and values our Native American, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, and all people who identify as Indigenous students.
- Applied Indigenous Studies (AIS) – Provides students with the knowledge and tools to contribute to the sustainability of indigenous communities in the 21st century. Using a curriculum to community approach, students in AIS are prepared to move from learning to action, applying Native ways of knowing for the benefit of indigenous communities within the US and abroad.
The Center for International Education is NAU’s hub for all things international—from international student admissions and education abroad to incorporating a global perspective into our academic and social programs.
Veteran and Military Services is dedicated to your success at Northern Arizona University. They are there to assist you at every stage of your educational experience, which includes your transition from military service to integrating into the classroom and entering your professional career.

The center is a place for military-affiliated students to connect with each other.
