One way students can get involved with DEI work is through clubs and organizations that explore a variety of topics on race, socioeconomics, gender and religion. The following clubs organize schoolwide events, such as movie nights, discussions and assembly announcements that educate the student body and raise awareness about inequities in our society. All interested students can become members of the clubs or choose to attend events.
ACC (Asian Cultures Club)
Faculty Advisors: Nahyon Lee and Hannah Puckett
ACC seeks to explore and celebrate Asian cultures through events where we expose the Nobles community to different traditions, languages, and foods. We also aim to inform our student body about relevant social and political issues, as well as the racial discrimination and stereotyping that affect Asian communities. We organize various fundraisers and outreach initiatives to make a difference beyond Nobles.

SURJE (Students United for Racial Justice and Equity)
Faculty Advisor(s): Mariah Oates and Edgar De Leon ’04
SURJE is Students United for Racial Justice and Equity. Its mission is to build racial equity awareness by fostering an understanding of implicit bias, institutional and systemic racism.

Faculty Advisors: Talya Sokoll, Alycia Scott-Hiser, Louis Barassi
The general purpose of the group is to work toward breaking down stereotypes and misconceptions of those who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual or transgender so that every student learns to respect and accept all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.
