Office of Minority Student Affairs

OMSA Office Staff

Our staff come from diverse ethnic backgrounds: African-American, Hispanic and Caucasian. Some of us grew up in Rochester or New York State, while others have relocated here.

Our college experiences are as diverse as our cultures. On our staff we have individuals who majored in such fields as African American studies, American Studies, Business Administration, Counseling, Economics, Psychology, Sociological Studies, Sociology, Social Work and Spanish. Our degrees and the colleges that we attended vary widely.

Each of us has a great deal to offer students, and we would welcome the opportunity to meet each of you. Please stop by the Office of Minority Student Affairs in 2161 Dewey Hall to get to know us better.
