The Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) Annual Report 2007-2008 is a year in review containing a message from the director, staff updates, community programs, statistics and general report of the work of this office. Our Mission: People from all backgrounds bring value to the art and human conversations held at RISD. The Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) assists the RISD community-at-large in shaping a culturally inclusive and supportive environment that enables all its members the opportunity to fully contribute to and benefit from the total RISD experience. OMA coordinates enriching opportunities for cultural awareness, dialogue, and interaction. The office services the needs of the total RISD community while providing specific support to RISD’s artists of color, those from international backgrounds, and those dedicated to inclusive community.

As a resource for RISD’s minority populations, OMA advises students on social, cultural, and personal matters, financial aid issues, and academic procedures. OMA works closely with faculty members, staff, and administrators to ensure every opportunity for minority populations to realize their academic goals and personal growth. OMA assists in student development and leadership through supporting and advising campus cultural groups on planning events, activities, and lectures, and similar community building programs.
