Annual OMA Pre-Orientation
The OMA Pre-Orientation program takes place two days prior to the general orientation program. Participants in this program can check in early and engage in various activities on campus with culturally diverse students, alumni and members of the Pittsburgh community.
First Year Transition Program
The OMA Transition Program is a retention initiative aimed at addressing the critical issues affecting the performance, persistence, and success of students. The process of students becoming integrated both socially and academically into college life involves attaining a good fit between the needs, abilities, and interests of the student and the culture of the institution. Participation in this program will provide you with the support and guidance needed to successfully navigate the college environment and utilize the various resources to accomplish their goals.
Professional Mentoring Program
The Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) at Duquesne University developed the OMA Mentoring Program to provide undergraduate students with opportunities to interact and learn from mentors who can assist in their overall development. Mentors consist of graduate students, faculty, staff, administrators, alumni, and professionals in the Greater Pittsburgh Area.
The key objectives are to assist students by providing support and guidance on issues that will help them succeed inside and outside of the classroom. It is expected that both the mentor and the protégé be committed to the relationship.
