The Office of Student Engagement and Multicultural Affairs is dedicated to creating a supportive and inclusive environment on campus that complements the academic experience, connects and engages all students with the Ithaca College community, and provides opportunities for on-going personal and professional development. Through our programs and services, we serve as a catalyst for all students to successfully transition to a new social and academic environment; participate and enhance involvement on campus; explore and develop cultural competencies; serve as agents of social change; and understand and enhance their leadership capacities.
I joined the OSEMA staff in August 2006 as an Administrative Assistant. I'm responsible for the Multicultural Affairs accounts, maintaining the website, supporting MLK Jr. Scholarship Program, Ithaca Achievement Program, and arranging domestic and international trips for the staff and MLK Scholars and CCLR participants.
