Multicultural Development

Multicultural Development exists as a home for students of color and for students committed to a greater understanding of Christ-centered diversity and biblical justice, particularly in terms of racial identity development and relationships, as a reflection of the imago dei.

We are committed to providing opportunities to address these issues first from the perspective of our unity in Christ. OMD works with the student organizations to provide multiple venues for fellowship, reflection, friendship, cultural celebration and addressing contemporary issues of diversity. Each of the organizations offer these venues out of gratitude for the gifts the Lord has given us in each of our distinct cultural backgrounds.

Culture-based Organizations
