What students say about the OMCA

I always thought the Office of Multicultural Affairs provided service to others, not Asian American students. After meeting with the Dean and the director, (a meeting they requested!) I found the office to be a safe, helpful, caring and inquisitive place and the experience gave me some insight into my own ethnic identity.

The OMCA in particular was created in response to minority student concerns. Accordingly, the office serves as an excellent resource for professional development as well as a haven for minority students. Regardless of your special interests, you can rest assured that you will find the necessary support to help you realize your full potential.

As the Office for Minority Affairs began to rework itself into the current Office of Multicultural Affairs, my views and the views of other lesbigay students were solicited and respected. Sexual Orientation has been included in the nondiscrimination clause of the Yale Physician's Oath.

The Office of Multicultural Affairs is a very special part of the Yale experience. The warm staff has always been genuinely concerned with my academic development as a physician, and is always available for support and counsel.
