The premiere group to promote Indian culture, traditions, and arts at the University of Virginia.

The mission of the Indian Student Association is to not only provide a cultural, social, service, and academic network for our members but also to educate the university community about the various cultures and traditions of the Indian subcontinent.

We're working hard to make this year the best yet.

Just wait.


For the past two years, we've been fortunate to win the Asian/Asian Pacific American (A/APA) Organization of the Year. Our goal is to improve upon achievements from this past year by increasing our outreach amongst the University community and to other Indian Student Associations around the Commonwealth. We hope to provide our members more events that will enhance their experience at the University!


We're the biggest cultural organization on Grounds.

So we do big things.


Founded in 1980, the Indian Student Association has slowly become not only the largest cultural organization at the University of Virginia, but also one of the largest organizations at the University. We are founded on pillars of cultural awareness, academic enhancement, service to the community, and social networking.
