Our Mission at THE O

The mission of THE O, which is comprised of the Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA), the Office for Gender and Sexual Diversity (OGSD), and Religious Life, is to strengthen and enhance diversity at Tulane University.  THE O offers students of color and lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender, intersex, queer, questioning, and allied students with advocacy services, mentoring,  personal support, and cultural, social, and academic programming to facilitate their adjustment to the University and ability to thrive thereafter.  It is also our mission to foster within the University community a respect and appreciation for racial, ethnic, religious, gender, and sexual diversity and the history, traditions, and cultures of underrepresented student populations.
