In honor of the tenth anniversary of Multicultural Affairs, we are compiling stories from students and alumni about their involvement with OMA and the impact its programs, services, and staff have had on their Columbia experiences.
We are accepting both written and video submissions. Please note the format guidelines for each:
The ROOTEd team of peer facilitators is trained in issues of power, privilege and oppression and how this translates on a diverse college campus. Facilitators examine their own personal and cultural place in contemporary society through innovative exercises and are trained to be facilitators around diversity issues.
We are now accepting facilitator applications for the 2017-2018 academic year.
Under1Roof is a required program for all incoming first year students in Columbia College and Columbia Engineering. It explores how we individually and collectively create an inclusive community at Columbia University. It provides the framework on how intergroup understanding and community building are achieved through continual engagement and education about the different social identities that all students bring to campus. It is the exciting beginning of a sustained dialogue that we hope will last throughout a student’s education here and beyond.
