Multicultural Student Affairs

"To achieve Excellence, we must be inclusive.
To be inclusive, we must be Equitable."

The Office of Multicultural Student Affairs (OMSA) is committed to the recruitment, retention, and graduation of underrepresented students. Our mission is to connect, empower, and develop students for success through cultural programming, academic workshops and mentoring. Students, staff, and faculty develop an enriching and enlightening connection to one another, the university, and our surrounding communities.
