  • Multicultural Affairs

    The Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) provides services that support academic success and personal development. Our primary goal is to promote a sense of community that enhances the well-being of all students.

    These objectives are achieved through advising sessions, referrals to appropriate offices and sponsorship of campus programming designed to educate and foster the exchange of dialogue in a setting where civility and respect is observed.

    Ohio Dominican University is proud to be home to a rich and culturally diverse community. We promote diversity and respect through many programs and activities throughout the year.

    Through lectures, conferences and a variety of cultural celebrations, we work with students to address cultural diversity in a global society.
