During this unprecedented moment within the racial justice movement of the 21st Century, reflecting on the exemplary lives of Harriet Tubman and Martin Luther King Jr. is not enough. Creating spaces that acknowledge and incorporate the achievements, contributions, and leadership of Black figures is critical everyday, not just in February.
African-Americans are among the most significant scholars, social trendsetters, cultural producers, and community connectors the world has ever seen. While their contributions are becoming more understood, recognized and appreciated, there's still more work to be done. Opportunities for culturally-sensitive leadership development are now and the intent and impact is just as crucial. Help me normalize this topic everyday, so when it is brought up, it's not so uncomfortable, nuanced, and left in the shortest month of the year. Let's get to work.

The Office of Multicultural Affairs fosters a campus community that respects and celebrates diversity in all its dimensions, including but not limited to differences of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, socioeconomic status, and physical ability.
OMA serves as a home base for students navigating the university experience—especially a challenging STEM path where diversity is essential. Some are first-generation students, some are students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds, and some are looking for a community where they will thrive. We offer support, resources, tools, and direction to all WPI students through engaging initiatives, programs, and services.
OMA staff members promote social justice, equity, and multicultural awareness while also providing the close community students need to achieve their academic, professional, and personal goals. Students connect with each other and find a network that lasts long after graduation.
