Welcome to the ND Boston Diversity Alumni Community

 

Welcome to the Notre Dame Club of Greater Boston's Diversity Program page.  Here in Boston, as at the University, we are committed to engaging and supporting all members of our community.  We believe that the inclusion of different types of people makes as stronger as a club.  These can be along the dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs, or other ideologies.

Notre Dame has a very active network of alumni affinity groups serving the diversity community.  Here are several resources to find out more about each.  (Note, the Facebook groups are  "closed" and require approval to join after requesting access)

To fulfill this mission, we will be offering programs and events that are reflective of varying interests as well as integrating diversity themes into programming sponsored by each of the "6 C's".  The club especially wants to recognize various "heritage" celebrations throughout the year in Boston such as Black History Month in February, Gay Pride in June and National Hispanic Heritage Month starting September 15th. 

If interested in helping out, or have an idea for an event, please contact any member of committee:
