About Us

Mission Statement

The Office of Multicultural Affairs (ōMA) views multiculturalism in the broadest sense. Our lens goes beyond race/ethnicity/nationality, to include the cultures of gender, gender identity, poverty, violence, differing abilities and aging.

At the core of the Office of Multicultural Affairs (ōMA) mission is the commitment to provide opportunities and venues for Pace University and external communities to examine, discuss, debate, collaborate and develop partnerships around themes that perpetuate (un)checked power, privilege, marginalization and social injustices.

To that end, ōMA sponsors programs and initiatives that include, but are not limited to:

  • Inclusion
  • Social Justice
  • Community Building and Empowerment
  • Mentoring
  • Scholarly Endeavors

ōMA is additionally committed towards cultivating artistic expressions and creative interactions by sponsoring workshops and programs in the arts.
