MULTICULTURAL AFFAIRS AND SOCIAL JUSTICE INITIATIVES

Students and staff attending the SheLeads Conference fall 2016The Office of Multicultural Affairs and Social Justice Initiatives (OMASJI) advances the creation and sustainability of a diverse, equitable, and inclusive campus. We serve as the campus’ principal facilitators of cultural development which is integral to the personal, academic, and professional success of every campus community member. With a commitment to our Franciscan values we gather, acknowledge, celebrate, and exchange information, ideas, and continued hope for a campus, community, and society where diversity, equity, and inclusion are embraced and not merely tolerated.  

The office is located in 103B Bogel Hall in the Student Success Center. All are encouraged to stop by for informal visits, or schedule an appointment for formal consultations.
