OMA Advisory Board


The primary objective of the Multicultural Advisory Board is to provide administrative oversight to the diversity and inclusion initiatives offered by the Office of Multicultural Affairs. Board members also serve as the liaison on diversity and inclusions initiatives in their respective academic or administrative departments. Ultimately, the Multicultural Advisory Board strives to acknowledge and celebrate − through the development and implementation of programs and policies − the diverse experiences within the Bellarmine community.


The members of the Multicultural Advisory Board are appointed by the Assistant Vice-President for Student Affairs and Multicultural Affairs.


Two meetings are held during the fall and spring semester of the academic year.
