The Office of Multicultural Affairs is celebrating its 10th anniversary with various events and activities that will engage students, alumni, faculty, and staff. Since the OMA first opened its doors in 2004, the office has grown to support a variety of programs and services aimed at understanding/ exploring one's identities, advancing the strength within communities and building meaningful coalitions across identities. It is also the 25th anniversary of the Intercultural Resource Center, which now falls under the OMA.
In addition to program specific dialogues and events throughout the academic year, members of the Columbia community are invited to get involved through:
- Sharing narratives about their OMA experiences (Read several submissions from students and alumni)
- Participating in our community mural
- Presenting at and attending the Days of Dialogue Conference (Friday, March 27, 2015)
- Attending the IRC's 25th Anniversary Celebration (Friday, May 1, 2015)
- Contributing your thoughts to the "Future of OMA" -- opportunities throughout the year at forums or directly let us know how we can support you and the community better
In the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and acknowledging the tenth anniversary of Multicultural Affairs at Columbia, we want to hear from students about #myCUdream.
Using the #myCUdream #OMA10 tags on Facebook and Twitter, share your dream of what you would like to see for our campus community in regards to equality, justice, and inclusion. Submit by Monday, January 26th, for your chance to WIN FIVE MOVIE TICKETS to see the new film, Selma, which chronicles the tumultuous three-month period in 1965, when Dr. King led a dangerous campaign to secure equal voting rights in the face of violent opposition.
