For the health and safety of the Grand Valley community, the Office of Multicultural Affairs will remain closed for the Spring 2020 semester. Our staff remain committed to student success and are available (via remote work) and can be reached at email@example.com or (616)-331-2177.
The Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) is committed to building a diverse and inclusive campus. Through its comprehensive programs and services, OMA fosters an appreciation and respect for the history, tradition, and culture of different ethnic groups, and empowers students to be active learners. Engage with us through participation in our cultural heritage celebrations, student support services, and social justice efforts.
Black Student Support
GVSU University Counseling Center has created a website to provide mental health resources specific to Black Students in response to the ongoing racial violence and trauma. You can find more information and a list of resources at www.gvsu.edu/counsel/blackstudentsupport.
The Office of Multicultural Affairs acknowledges and celebrates the diverse cultures on campus through
the academic year via cultural heritage month celebrations. Engage with us this Fall as we celebrate Native American and Hispanic Heritage.
Laker Familia, Niara, Black Male Scholars, & Queer Connections are designed to create an environment where students can achieve their full potential at GVSU while being their authentic selves. These programs are a reflection of our values of inclusiveness and diversity and our
core mission of student success.
OMA encourages the campus to embrace a social justice and intersectional identity approach to diversity, equity, and inclusion work. Get connected through Conversations of Color, Intersections Ambassadors, or OMA Ambassadors.
