Multicultural Development

The Office of Multicultural Development (OMD) provides programs and resources to the campus for students to be able to engage in conversations about diversity.



It is the mission of Multicultural Development to collaboratively serve students of color by developing programs and resources to assist them in the process from matriculation to graduation, and to provide resources and ideas for majority students seeking to identify and understand issues of diversity from a distinctly Christian worldview. The office seeks to enhance the student experience by encouraging the utilization of campus resources, participation in campus life, and understanding cultural differences.


The Office of Multicultural Development (OMD) is located in the Lower Beamer Center. We welcome students to "drop in" or to call ahead and schedule an appointment to obtain more information about OMD programs, or simply to come in and talk.

Feel free to contact Rodney Sisco (Director) at 752.5028 or or Eva Ortiz (Assistant Director) at 752.7056 or
