The Office of Multicultural Affairs’ mission is to promote diversity, as well as student leadership and development by contributing to the recruitment and retention of the under-represented student population and to the creation and maintenance of a more inclusive learning community. The office serves as a central base for all cultural student organizations and it aims to create a more inclusive learning campus climate
- To attract and retain under-served and under-represented students
- To promote student leadership and development
- To enhance our students’ learning success and global awareness
- To provide programs and initiatives that educate, motivate and challenge students as members of PVAMU.
Our Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) also sponsors a variety of social, cultural educational programs and events throughout the academic year and advises a group of volunteer mentors.
The National Student Exchange
Where will you study next year?
The National Student Exchange program is a study away opportunity in the United States, Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
This National Student Exchange program gives our eligible students access to the resources of nearly 200 member colleges and universities which range in size from some of the largest research universities to some of the best, small liberal arts colleges. NSE includes Hispanic serving institutions, Historically Black Colleges and Universities; and a number of ethnically mixed campuses.
Our students can participate for a single term or an academic year. For some students, it will be their first time away from our area and their first time in a residence hall. Our students participating in this exchange program will;
- broaden their personal and educational experiences
- explore and appreciate new cultures
- take courses not offered at our campus
- learn from different professors
- explore new areas of study
- break out of their comfort zones
- expand their academic program options
- experience personal growth
- investigate graduate schools or employment opportunities
The Office of Multicultural Affairs encourages students to come directly to my office in Evans Hall, Room 301 to pick up a brochure and application.
