Who We Are
After discovering the Office of Multicultural Affairs, you’ll realize that we are your “home away from home.” OMA is committed to enhancing the educational experience of students from underrepresented populations. Additionally, we strive to create an environment that reflects the multicultural nature of all Johns Hopkins students.
Our events and programs are designed to support and challenge students, providing opportunities for engagement in multicultural initiatives, celebrations, and educational programs; community service; mentoring, and academic support. OMA’s Multicultural Center is a hub where students participate in events, engage in dialogue, study, or just relax. Our hope is that you visit and get involved in the many offerings that OMA provides.
