ōMA Fall 2019 Events (NYC)

News Story

The Office of Multicultural Affairs (ōMA) is committed to creating a culture of diversity, inclusion, and belonging on the NYC Campus. Meet with them on Thursday, September 19, as they unveil their events for the fall semester!

At the core of the Office of Multicultural Affairs (ōMA) mission is the commitment to provide opportunities and venues for Pace students to examine, discuss, debate, collaborate, and develop partnerships around themes that perpetuate (un)checked power, privilege, marginalization, and social injustices. They’re constantly sponsoring programs and leading initiatives to broaden perspectives at Pace, and you’re invited to join them in their important work.

Be sure to hit up their meet and greet event kicking off the fall semester! We’ll see you there:
