Our Mission

The student-led Nanook Diversity & Action Center (NDAC) promotes a community of inclusion, social justice, and cultural pluralism by providing educational activities in collaboration with student organizations, that honor and support areas of age, gender, religion, ability, socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, culture, and sexual orientation.

NDAC goals include:

  • Increasing student awareness and appreciation for other identities/cultures.
  • Providing guidance and support to student organizations that want to program cultural events, create diversity initiatives, or provide educational opportunities that encourage cultural pluralism.
  • Providing programs that challenge the use of stereotypes.

    If you are interested in getting involved with NDAC, email for our current meeting time and location.

Hello! Thanks so much for your interest in submitting artwork for UP/RISE. As you know, March is Women's History Month, and NDAC thought it would be fantastic to highlight the artwork celebrating the strength, the beauty, the artistry, and the tenacity of women.

Here are some information that you would need to know:

  • The UP/RISE Women's Art Show will be held from March 20 to March 31, in the Arctic Java. The reception will be held on that Friday (March 24)
  • We are only currently accepting 2D art –– as there is no space for 3D art at the venue.
  • Submission deadline is Monday, March 13
  • Bring your artwork to the NDAC Office (Wood Center 101L) by March 20.
  • Hanging date is Monday, March 20. (You must be present on Monday, March 20 by 3pm to hang your pieces. NDAC will not hang them for you. Also, artwork must be ready to hang.)
