Student Affinity Groups

Association for Cultural Enrichment at SLUH (ACES)

ACES is a student group committed to encouraging awareness and discussion of diversity issues and making SLUH a place where all students feel welcome. The club meets regularly, and all students are welcome.

Under the umbrella of ACES, SLUH offers a series of affinity and alliance groups that are open to all students and seek to create spaces for shared conversation, fellowship and initiatives.

ANTI-RACIST COALITION

The Anti-Racist Coalition explores implicit biases and systemic racism while seeking to effectively eliminate these evils. The club continually works toward equality for all races and strives to undo racism in the psyches, in the immediate environment and in the wider world.

ASIAN STUDENT ALLIANCE

The Asian Student Alliance (ASA) offers students of Asian Pacific heritage opportunities to celebrate diverse Asian heritages while educating and enriching the school community with that diversity. Club members share their unique cultural heritages and experiences at SLUH, while accompanying each other in their high school journey.

BLACK STUDENT UNION

The Black Student Union offers a safe space for African American students to discuss relevant issues that impact their emotional well being. Open to all students, BSU offers an intimate setting especially for African American students while challenging traditional dogmas of society that have had a lasting stigma of exclusivity.

HISPANOS Y LATINOS UNIDOS

Hispanos y Latinos Unidos welcomes all SLUH students, especially Hispanic and Latinos, to be part of a group that spends time together and shares experiences and perspectives. The clubs engages in many group activities to strengthen the brotherhood or "la hermandad" among Latino students and the overall school community.

ONGOING CONVERSATIONS

Ongoing Conversations offers space for students to have open, honest discussions about sexuality, gender identity and Catholic social teaching. Respect, compassion and sensitivity are a top priority as the group addresses complex topics and helps individuals, regardless of circumstance, to fulfill God’s will in their lives.

SLUH STUDENTS FOR GENDER EQUALITY

SLUH Students for Gender Equality (SLUH4GE, pronounced “SLUH Forge”) seeks to acknowledge, educate club members, and spread awareness of issues regarding gender equality at SLUH and beyond.
