The Howard University chapter of NOMAS, a newly reinstated chapter, is currently run by President Renee Whiteley and Vice President Kinshasa Campbell. As a chapter we aim to provide the students of Howard University’s Department of Architecture with opportunities to network and learn from professionals in the workplace, specifically minorities. We believe this connection is necessary as representation matters and seeing someone in a position you desire who also looks like you can be a powerful motivator. This past semester our chapter partnered with Howard University’s AIAS chapter and the Hemiunu chapter of Alpha Rho Chi Fraternity Inc. to provide the student body with a week of professional development and fellowship. For example, we hosted a Portfolio, Resume and cover letter workshop where students were encouraged to bring their documents to be reviewed by professionals from ZGF, Perkins Eastman, and Hickok Cole.
