About the Office of Multicultural Development


The Office of Multicultural Development is committed to providing an affirming, inclusive and welcoming environment for all students at The University of Akron. To support our students, we offer direct services, programs and resources that are focused on ensuring their academic success, retention, and graduation. Our department also collaborates with other campus partners to provide opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to cultivate cultural awareness and engage in meaningful intercultural dialogue. Furthermore, we are strong advocates for social justice.


OMD strives to increase the impact of UA’s inclusive excellence commitment, leading to wider understanding and greater success for all students. We will also aim to be a pivotal catalyst in enhancing academic success, retention, and individual growth for our diverse student populations.
