National Organization of Minority Architects Students

Cornell's Chapter of National Organization of Minority Architects Students (NOMAS) is a student organization under the leadership of the National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA). Founded in 1992, Cornell NOMAS's mission is to be an active and vocal community within AAP to support and empower underrepresented students of color and minority communities through opportunities such as a mentorship program between the upper and younger year students, portfolio and resume critiques, meeting and networking with professionals at the annual NOMA conference, representing Cornell University at the annual NOMA Conference and the Barbara G. Laurie Student Design Competition and participating in community engagement and activism within the AAP and greater Cornell University community.

In 2019, Cornell NOMAS invited Sekou Cooke to give a lecture on the development and study of Hip Hop Architecture.

In 2019 the Cornell NOMAS chapter won second place in the NOMAS student design competition in Brooklyn, NY.
