First Nations Club

First Nations Club honors all of the indigenous peoples of the Americas, pre-Columbus. Our main goal is to keep First Nations students connected to their culture and life-ways while they are so far from home. All NU students, faculty, staff and family are encouraged to participate, not just those who have native ancestry. We will be celebrating our diversity with an annual Pow-Wow to honor veterans. This event will also serve as major fundraising activity open to all other student clubs. Club activities include sharing tribal histories, creating regalia and dance pieces, traditional crafts, participating in other collegiate Pow-wows, storytelling, film and book reviews, guest lecturers, grant writing and student tutoring and mentoring. According to the U.S. Department of Defense, Native Americans have the highest rate of service to the U.S. military of any ethnic group. Now we have a voice at Norwich.

Harold “Doc” Martin Society

The Harold “Doc” Martin Society is the multicultural society of Norwich University. We welcome students from all races, ethnicities, religious affiliations and backgrounds. Our mission is to promote a community of acceptance, all-inclusiveness, and diversity here on campus. By doing so, we create a more welcoming campus climate, and ultimately, a better Norwich. We organize events where students can speak about their experiences regarding discrimination in any fashion. We have Cultural Days where our members dress in the traditional garb of their ancestry, and we volunteer in the local community. Diversity is more than just a theme; it is a fact of life that there many people in this world who are different from you. As a society, we want to show appreciation for these differences and promote understanding among our fellow students.
