Critical Intellectual Inquiry

As you interact dialectically in the classroom and in social life, OMA will engage you in critical intellectual inquiry on issues of commonality and difference to help you meet the career and societal challenges you will face in a changing world. Our programs and services will help you adapt acquired modes of expertise and experience to new circumstances, help you think creatively across differing frames of reference, apply your academic discipline to your personal extracurricular/campus/ social experience, and develop your critical pedagogical skills for promoting new modes and areas of intellectual inquiry. OMA programs and services that promote critical intellectual inquiry will encourage you to delve deeper into relevant social theories and modes of critical thinking in order to advance your ability to promote institutional/ social change.
