‘Diversity means accepting cultures and valuing the differences in people.’ James BroadWelcome to the Keene State College Office of Multicultural Student Affairs (OMSA) website. OMSA has created this site to provide you with information about our office, some of its programs and events. The Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, on the second floor of the Student Center, is where a little more of the world hangs out.

Walk in and join the students talking about diversity and cultural issues, or maybe just lunch, at the coffee table. Or start a new discussion about an experience you've had. Browse the books and movies, or pick up an international magazine and sit in the armchair in the welcoming light of the lamp. Some students see OMSA as their home base and stop in every day. Come in, and you'll see why.

Mission & Overview
The mission of the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs (OMSA) is to implement and coordinate academic and social support programs that enable KSC African American, Native American, Asian American, and Latino students to gain the greatest benefit from their educational experience. In all pursuits, OMSA strives to:

  1. Enhance students' opportunities for active involvement in the College and the Keene community;
  2. Support individual and student group initiatives that address diversity;
  3. Assure that students have equal access to all academic, social and recreational programs, groups and activities; and
  4. Promote and incorporate into every aspect of campus life an appreciation for the multiculturalism.

The Office of Multicultural Student Affairs works in conjunction with a number of campus departments and offices to coordinate efforts related to recruitment, orientation, retention and graduation. Particular focus is given to collaborating with academic and student support services to ensure that specific student needs are effectively addressed.

To reach the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, please send us an e-mail.
