The #IAIATogetherApart website was created to give voice to the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) Community—a voice to help cope with the 2020 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and its effects on a community who largely relies on day-to-day physical interaction for learning, mentoring, and communicating. All IAIA Community members are eligible to submit their stories to the #IAIATogetherApart website. See for criteria and guidelines.

Stories can be just that, a story, or perhaps a poem, a letter—from one word to 512 words. During this pandemic, the IAIA campus is absent of your voice in its classrooms, hallways, walking paths, dorms, office spaces, buildings, and Café, but don’t let that stop you from vocalizing—share your voice, submit a story to #IAIATogetherApart.

  • This website is for members of the IAIA community, which includes staff, faculty, students, alumni, board members, parents and family members, other TCUs, AIHEC, and AICF.
  • Your stories can include your name, position title and organization, or you can post anonymously.
  • There is a maximum size of 512 words.
  • Submissions will be reviewed, and possibly edited, before they are published. Please follow our Social Media Guidelines as outlined in the College Catalog. Moderators will review each posting within 24 hours, Monday through Friday.

After you submit a story, head over to Instagram and post photographs and videos using your story and the #IAIATogetherApart hashtag for a chance to be featured on IAIA’s social media.

#IAIATogetherApart was conceived and created by IAIA’s offices of Institutional Research (Dr. Bill Sayre, Anita Gavin, Jesse Morris) and Marketing and Communications (Jason S. Ordaz, Nicole Lawe). The website launched on Monday, March 30, 2020. For inquires, please contact
