About Us

Keene State’s Office of Multicultural Student Support and Success (OMSSS) provides opportunities for students to honor their authentic selves by facilitating exploration of their role in and responsibilities to local and global communities. The OMSSS strives to co-create communities that are equitable, caring, and inclusive by connecting students, colleagues, and campus partners to each other and their environment.

We offer ongoing weekly, monthly, and annual programming that is both social and educational, such as Crafternoon, Chop It Up, Out & About, Flag Raising Celebration, Holi, and many more. Located on the second floor of the L.P. Young Student Center, our office is a welcoming and comfortable space for students to come hang out, study, and build community. Some students see OMSSS as their home base and stop in every day. Pay us a visit and you’ll see why.

We inhabit a universe that is characterized by diversity.
