Not only does OBU have student affinity groups focused on the unique needs and interests of students of color, we also have diversity champions throughout our campus at all levels of the university.
The Vice President will assume leadership of the Diversity Committee as Chair. The group is comprised of faculty members, staff members and students from throughout the University to promote campus diversity.
Student Affinity Groups
The Office of University Culture will engage closely with student affinity groups to provide support for their goals and activities. Such groups exist to help create a vibrant environment wherein individuals from various backgrounds can experience a sense of belonging; feel represented, respected, appreciated; make their voices heard in a comfortable atmosphere; articulate and share unique needs and interests; and be supported for individual success.
At this point, the following student affinity groups have been formed:
- Black Student Association
- Latin American Student Association
- Native American Student Association
- International Student Association
