National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA) Arizona Student Chapter

Our Mission

NOMA is a student organization with a mission to create a unified community within CAPLA, to serve as an increasingly influential voice in minimizing the effects of discrimination and to promote the voice and work of minority design and built environment students for the betterment of our community.

NOMA welcomes all CAPLA students regardless of major or degree, and of any ethnicity, race, color, gender, sexual orientation, religion, disability or background, to be part of our mission in fighting discrimination as well as fostering communication and fellowship among members of our field.

NOMA Arizona has waived the membership fee for all students in Arizona schools of architecture this academic year. In so doing, they are making the NOMA Arizona academic scholarships available to NOMA CAPLA members for applications in 2022-2023.
