The mission of the AIAS is:
To promote excellence in architecture education, training and practice. We celebrate our membership in several ways. Members of the AIAS have the opportunity to have their work published in CRIT, Journal of the AIAS the only international journal devoted to the work and critical thoughts of architecture students.
To foster an appreciation of architecture and related disciplines. We host an annual convention, FORUM, which provides students with the opportunity to learn about the issues facing architectural education and the profession, to meet students and professionals with common interests, and to interact with some of today’s leading architects and designers.
To enrich communities in a spirit of collaboration. Through the Freedom by Design™ program, we are organizing our members to be good citizens in their communities.
To organize students and combine their efforts to advance the art and science of architecture. We serve as the sole student voice in the decision making process of such organizations as The American Institute of Architects (AIA), Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA), and National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB).

We give students an opportunity to create relationships with both architect students and professionals throughout the nation. We participate mostly in social gatherings, informational seminars, and competitions. The ultimate goal in having this organization, is to inspire students to continue pursuing their career goals while simultaneously allowing their culture to influence their work in an innovative way.
