The Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) Working Remotely Effective March 19, 2020
In light of the heightened concerns around COVID-19 and CSULB's decision to suspend in-person classes, Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) staff will work remotely until further notice. Our goal is to continue to support students and our campus community. During this time, OMA, the Multicultural Center and the Student Cultural Resource Centers (SCRCs) will not be open for any in-person services (computer lab, tutoring, workshops, programing), but we will maintain our normal operational hours remotely.
OMA staff will be available online Monday - Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm starting March 19, 2020, until further notice. If you would like to schedule an appointment, please email the designated staff member(s) below with your request. An OMA staff member will then reach out to schedule a Zoom appointment with you.
The mission of the Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) is to support the intercultural learning and development of students, specifically those from historically underrepresented backgrounds at CSU Long Beach. This department has played a central role in supporting the personal and academic success of students through programs and services focused on identity development, community building, and advocacy. OMA lives out its mission by operationalizing its functions areas: Educate, Connect, and Advocate.
- Educate: OMA promotes learning on multiple identities, backgrounds, and experience of self and others through a range of programs, discussions, resources, and campus events.
- Connect: OMA works with all students, specifically those of historically underrepresented backgrounds, to build relationships that establish a sense of belonging within our CSU Long Beach community. OMA Staff engage with the broader Long Beach community and beyond to understand community needs and resources.
- Advocate: OMA elicits students’ ability to engage as conscious global citizens, investing in their abilities to serve as change makers for society’s current and future endeavors
