Office of Multicultural Affairs

The mission of the Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) supports Georgia Southern University’s greater mission to support cultural diversity. The department is designed to educate and celebrate the cultural and ethnic diversity of students, staff and the Georgia Southern community. This is accomplished by cultivating leaders who value civility, problem solving and heritage. The Office of Multicultural Affairs also promotes a fulfilling and comprehensive college experience which encourages social responsibility and personal well-being obtained through cultural opportunities both inside and outside the classroom. These include a series of support services, programs and activities that foster inclusion and pluralism.

In addition to facilitating diversity workshops in the classroom and for student organizations, the Office of Multicultural Affairs also organizes and promotes campus-wide diversity events which includes but is not limited to: lectures, conferences, trips and leadership workshops.
