"It is a distinct honor for me to welcome you to the Office of Multicultural Programs (OMP) in the College of Agriculture, where you can find information about the exemplary work that is being done in the area of diversity and inclusion throughout our college community. Diversity in all its forms is integral to the success of this institution. The College of Agriculture is a diverse and multicultural community that values, supports and is accepting of differences; a community that continually strives to be equitable, fair and inclusive. This website will showcase best practices for diversity programs that work in our college, as well as across the university. A key goal for this website is to enhance communication and collaboration in the area of diversity, both across campus and in the surrounding communities."
