Empowerment Programming

The Office of Multicultural Student Success​ (OMSS)'s approach to advancing the cause of marginalized group members at DePaul University is rooted in DePaul’s belief that systems of privilege and oppression directly impact the lives of people in this community. In light of this, OMSS staff members promote the interests of underrepresented populations at multiple levels within the institution in order to initiate change and give voice to the issues and concerns of people that may not otherwise be acknowledged. OMSS also provides academic success information, developmental programs, and key staff contacts for first generation, low income students, or students of color to empower them to be their own advocates during a time of crisis.
