DEI Clubs and Organizations
The following are clubs and organizations found on our Rindge campus that focus on diversity.
Established in 2019 by Alana Thompson and Devin Jones, The Diamond Steppers have brought a new and fresh feel to Franklin Pierce University. Stepping combines clapping, stomping, and dancing to create rhythms and beats. It takes origin from African Dances, and is now used by black fraternities, sororities, and step teams all over the world. It is an art form that is both exciting and educational for both members and the community as a whole. We meet in the dance studio on Thursdays and Fridays throughout the entire school year. We also perform around campus in basketball games, A.L.A.N.A organized events, as well as our own step show at the end of the semester. For those who want to join but may not want to perform, we offer the option of being a part of our stage crew which operates sound, takes pictures, and keeps costumes in order. We hope you consider joining our club!!! All are welcome. For more information, send an email to DiamondSteppers@franklinpierce.edu.
A.L.A.NA (African, Latinx, Asian, Native American) was first established in 2007 by Phebe Higgins. A.L.A.NA has changed its purpose based on the needs of the campus community. Today, A.L.A.NA’s mission is to establish a student version of the D.E.I council and work to bring the campus community together. A.L.A.NA members are dedicated to creating a place of belonging and provide resources for students of color at Franklin Pierce University. Any registered student who is interested can join and be a part of this amazing group. For more information, send an email to Diversity@franklinpierce.edu.
