Multicultural Affairs

Students perform community service at the Romero Center in Camden

The Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) is dedicated to developing and implementing university-wide programs and initiatives aligned with diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. Students that get involved with OMA are able to enhance their multicultural and intercultural competency by actively learning how to be leaders in a diverse society.
