All Nations Students Association
All Nations Student Association (ANSA) is a club dedicated to helping students explore diversity and how it enhances the educational experience. Nicolet students come from a variety of cultures and we learn from those whose experiences, beliefs, and perspectives are different from our own. Diversity challenges stereotyped preconceptions, encourages critical thinking and fosters mutual respect and inclusion. ANSA is comprised of students whose members are committed to communicating and sharing effectively with people of varied backgrounds. ANSA members provide and promote cross-campus, cross-cultural events and activities that highlight the collective diversity that exists amongst Nicolet's student body.
