Equity & Inclusion

Identity-Focused Student Club and Organizations

An Engaged Student Body

The NA faculty and student body engage in initiatives that invite action and dialogue to promote diversity, inclusion and deeper understanding of race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion and socioeconomic status. NA empowers students to take an active role in this work.

Thirteen of the more than 60 student clubs on campus are affiliated with the Office of Equity and Inclusion. These clubs have articulated missions that are closely tied to the vision for creating a diverse, inclusive and equitable community at NA. These clubs are encouraged and supported to collaborate with one another on developing events and presentations in the spirit of intersectionality.
