Inclusion and belonging

Everyone belongs at SNC

The principle of radical hospitality and the sacred dignity of all people, central to Norbertine values, translate to everyone’s equal right to an inclusive, respectful experience on the St. Norbert College campus. They also extend to the right to be seen, heard and valued regardless of your identity and how you choose to express it.

A sense of social responsibility and social justice — an urge to make the world a better place — is also part of the Norbertine world view and you’ll have many opportunities to reflect on what these concepts mean for you during your time at SNC.

Living our values

We have resources and programs available through our on-campus centers that are part of SNC’s long-term commitment to our shared vision:

The Cassandra Voss Center offers innovative programming about issues of identity that is making an impact at the regional and national level. The center is a focal point for education and awareness among faculty, staff and students at the college – and beyond.

In an increasingly interconnected world, appreciation for other cultures and awareness of global issues are essential to prepare you for a life of impact and influence. The Center for Global Engagement can help you add a global dimension to your St. Norbert College experience through their study abroad and off-campus programs, on-campus programming and Great Decisions lecture series.

The Norman Miller Center for Peace, Justice & Public Understanding cultivates awareness, compassion and commitment to justice and the building of sustainable peace. As such, the activities of the center champion the human dignity of all.

The Sturzl Center for Community Service & Learning connects students to service work that promotes the common good by addressing real community needs. The center is grounded firmly in the idea that service can be a medium for personal growth for students and an agent of positive change in our communities.


First-generation students

The Proud to be First program is open to any students whose parents/guardians did not earn a four-year degree. A quarter of SNC students identify as “first generation,” so being first does not mean being alone. Proud to be First aims to celebrate these students’ contributions to SNC, help them make useful connections and inspire them to build their confidence.


Cross-cultural programs

Annually, the college hosts events to celebrate and raise awareness of other cultures, including Black History Month, Asian Pacific Islander Celebration, Native American Celebration Week and Latine Student Union Fiesta.


LGBTQIA+ students

The LGBTQ+ Student Services connects students with resources and support in an effort to foster a campus environment where all students, including those who identify as lesbian, gay, bi, trans, queer, questioning or otherwise, feel welcomed, respected, safe and valued.

Office of Student Inclusion & Belonging

The office of student inclusion and belonging creates safe relationships for and with students in order to facilitate their personal and intellectual growth.

The office also conducts programs for the campus community and special populations of students, including:

  • Annual events to celebrate and raise awareness of other cultures, including Black History Month, Asian Pacific Islander Celebration, Native American Heritage Celebration and Hispanic Heritage Celebration.
  • Students Taking Academic Responsibility (STAR), which helps first-year multicultural students develop a toolkit for academic and career success, and build relationships across campus.
  • Men of Distinction, a leadership and empowerment program designed to help Black males thrive during their time at SNC and beyond.
