Multicultural Events and Programs
The Office of Multicultural Affairs encourages student participation with the celebration of the life and times of the civil rights activist Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This annual program honors his spirit and legacy along with other great leaders from the Civil Rights Movement. Students, faculty, and staff are invited to remember the history and lessons from the Civil Rights Movement and discuss how the next generation can move through the perilous present and into a just and sustainable future. Through this tribute, the OMA and its student participants ask the question, ‘Where do we go from here?’
Stevenson University annually pays tribute to those lost on Sept. 11, 2011. The tribute gives students the opportunity to reflect on the resilience of the human spirit and to honor the lives of innocent people who represented not just the United States of America but also 50 countries.
While honoring the lives that were lost, OMA also asks participants to reflect on the power of our differences and our similarities as individuals.
Tunnel of Oppression
OMA hosts an annual two-day campus diversity exhibit during each spring's Multicultural Awareness Week. Students, clubs, organizations, and classes have the opportunity to research, present, and exhibit a wide range of global issues, socioeconomic status issues, racial and cultural issues, gender concerns, issues related to disability, facts, misconceptions and assumptions, and how they impact the people's everyday lives.
Multicultural Awareness Week
Every spring semester, OMA hosts a mini-conference on multiculturalism and diversity. The week is features numerous activities such as music, dance, lectures, workshops, and exhibits. The entire campus is encouraged to participate in this week long celebration of differences and similarities.
These activities are designed to enrich, enlighten, and elevate participants to a better understanding of others and oneself.
A safe space where your voice is heard and respected. The Roundtable is a student run forum open to all students, faculty, and staff to discuss global issues, coordinate diversity activities around campus and inspire good ole fashion conversation. (see keep it real pics attached)
