LSU School of Architecture Diversity Statement

The LSU School of Architecture is committed to an active, intentional, and ongoing engagement with fostering diversity. Providing a multiplicity of voices and viewpoints is essential to our mission of imagining and shaping a more equitable future. An architectural education encourages students to take account of alternative points of view, a skill necessary for communication and leadership in a multifaceted and changing profession. This education prepares students to undertake the shared obligation of achieving a more just and inclusive profession and, consequently, a more just an inclusive built environment.

LSU NOMAS—National Organization of Minority Architecture Students

The LSU National Organization of Minority Architecture Students (NOMAS) is a student organization that champions diversity within the design professions by promoting the excellence, community engagement, and professional development of its members. NOMAS promotes diversity within architecture education as well as the profession, creating connections between fellow students, organizations, and professionals. The organization hosts various events that help promote high academic performance.
