The mission of the Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) is to provide quality services and programs that support and enhance the collegiate experience, particularly for students of color. Through advising, advocacy, and outreach, OMA is dedicated to an equitable, diverse, and inclusive campus community that helps students excel individually and collectively.
The OMA mission is accomplished by enhancing four core multicultural student values:
- Leadership development
- Equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI)
- Educational growth
- Personal growth
The Office of Multicultural Affairs will strive for merit in excellence by providing exceptional
student services that result in an increased presence and participation of students of color
in all academic, social, and personal endeavors at UW-Eau Claire. OMA staff will enhance
self-image of students of color by facilitating respect for and an appreciation of the rich history, tradition, and culture of ethnically diverse students and groups.
