The ASLA-NY Student Chapter at the Spitzer School of Architecture provides a direct link between the largest organization of professional landscape architects and the only accredited MLA program in New York City. The student chapter provides events, meetings and other opportunities for students to gain connections to practicing landscape architects, as well as a practical understanding of the field of landscape architecture in New York City.

The National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMAS)
The National Organization of Minority Architecture Students (NOMAS) is a national organization that encourages minorities to address issues faced in the design world, as well as foster a community for young aspiring architects. The Spitzer Chapter aims to bring this opportunity to our campus, one of the most diverse in the nation. There will be events and lectures concerning the issue of diversity and inclusion in architecture as well as possible mentorships between students and architects to create equal opportunities. Through NOMAS at CCNY, students will be exposed to the larger sphere of inclusive architecture and be given resources about scholarships, fellowships and architecture organizations, like NYCOBA/NOMA. The NOMAS Chapter will also participate in the annual student competition (to be held online in 2020), and hopes to continue the tradition of participating in years to come.
