The Office of Multicultural Programs, as part of the Division of Student Affairs, believes in assisting the NDSU community in creating a culturally diverse and sensitive campus by providing student, faculty, and staff-centered support programs, cultural events, and tools for personal growth experiences.
The Office of Multicultural Programs (OMP) connects with multicultural students, faculty and staff who are inquiring about NDSU. For students, OMP communicates regularly with the Office of Admission in order to connect with prospective multicultural students and their families. We meet with students who come to campus and want more information about our services. OMP representatives also travel to local career and college fairs in order to assist the Office of Admission reach more multicultural populations. This area creates opportunities for the department to inform multicultural people of NDSU and OMP programs.
The OMP connects with multicultural students, faculty, and staff currently at NDSU by informing them of on and off campus resources to help them succeed and excel at NDSU. OMP encourages these groups to refer multicultural students to the office for services, free tutoring, a laptop lending program, scholarship information, and individual meetings regarding financial aid, housing and academic interests. This area oversees the department’s data collection and analysis project to gain a better understanding of the academic needs of our students. This area assists with the department’s research programs for students interested in Science, Technology, Engineering or Math (STEM) areas.
OMP communicates with the Alumni Center in order to establish a multicultural alumni program for the department. This area oversees the departments social network activities with past, current and future NDSU multicultural people. This area also assists the department with grant writing in order to develop programs for multicultural people. The Outreach Program Coordinator connects OMP to entities and programs outside of campus which seek NDSU OMP involvement which may include government, private, and non-profit groups within the community.
Each academic year the Office of Multicultural Programs sponsors cultural and social events in celebration of Cultural Awareness Month, Native American Heritage Month, Black History Month, and more. Our events are free and open to all! Contact our office to get involved in our events and programs today!
