UNL's NOMA is a student group modeled after the national organization.  Strength in NOMA is built through unity in the cause that creates the organization. Through publications and conferences, NOMA works to inform and empower minority architectural professionals to exceed in their design and construction goals. 

"By building a strong organization, we develop a showcase for the excellence and creativity which have been ignored for so long." "Our impact is felt when our organization wrestles with the dilemmas that face this nation, particularly as they affect our profession. There is strength in numbers. By increasing the number of people in this organization, we add strength to the voice with which we can speak against apathy, bigotry, intolerance and ignorance; against abuse of the natural environment; and for the un-empowered, the marginalized and the disenfranchised."
