COVID-19: Our Plan to Support You

Note to Students about COVID-19

The Office of Multicultural Student Engagement (OMSE) seeks to cultivate a safe campus environment where we value, promote, and celebrate identities among all students who engage with our office. In this time of social distancing and online learning, we want you to know we are still here to support you in whatever way we can. We will be hosting weekly group chats and offering one on one chats to give students space to discuss whatever they may need.

If you would like to join our group chats, follow this link. We are currently available on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1-2 pm EST.
