The Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) is a place for students of different cultures, backgrounds, and experiences to come together in an effort to learn more about themselves and about each other. OMA takes a holistic approach to empower Oklahoma State University students to think and act in ways that will embrace and promote a more inclusive world. We assist students in achieving academic excellence, developing their personal and professional character, and engaging in the campus and greater community. OMA achieves these goals by connecting students with opportunities and resources in the areas of self-discovery, empowerment, cultural education, and leadership development to prepare students to live and thrive in the diverse world.

OMA is home to Oklahoma State University’s cultural affinity student groups, including the African-American Student Association, Asian-American Student Association, Hispanic Student Association, Minority Women’s Association, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, Oklahoma State Queers and Allies, Vietnamese-American Student Association, and Women’s Programming Advisory Council. OMA is the umbrella for over 20 student organizations. Additionally, OMA supports the programs and activities of the Native American Student Association, housed within the Center for Sovereign Nations. Other OMA opportunities for involvement include academic seminars/workshops, cultural experiences, service learning experiences, and social engagement programs. Scholarships and mentorship programs are available to help students be successful as well.
