ODMA Mission Statement


The Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs (ODMA) seeks to foster the academic and personal development of all UAH faculty, staff and students by addressing issues of diversity and by supporting the ongoing development of underrepresented people of color in post-secondary education.

ODMA seeks to offer cross-cultural perspectives to promote interactive pluralism through the initiation and monitoring of programming and by creating mutual opportunities for exchange through cooperative planning and support of all University services.

ODMA offers culturally sensitive programs, activities and initiatives to assist the University in providing a welcoming campus atmosphere that is supportive and rewarding as students prepare themselves to become responsible adults in the global community with a respect for cultural diversity.

ODMA seeks to improve minority participation on campus through the recommendation and monitoring of comprehensive, institution-wide intercultural practices and programming.
