Diversity Department

What is the Diversity Department?

Dream of Destiny

OCC's Dream of Destiny Diversity Department seeks to cultivate a multi-ethnic, multicultural campus and constituency by working across college departments to intentionally recruit and retain ethnic minority students and to increase campus and classroom cultural inclusiveness.

The Ozark community is committed to honoring and broadening the diversity of our community and to treating every person with respect and love. We want every student to feel at home at OCC, and we want to equip our students to be culturally agile in any context. Ozark equips students to serve in a diverse world. As we train men and women for Christian service, we seek to raise them up as leaders who encourage cultural and ethnic diversity for the sake of the gospel.

Why Diversity Matters

Mosaic Lunches

Mosaic Lunches offer an environment for any student, faculty or staff to gather together in order to discuss difficult topics taking place in the nation and the church. A majority of the topics pertain to diversity, culture and politics.

Heritage Celebrations

Heritage Celebrations inform and honor the culture of a specific people group, letting the college campus see the diverse Body of Christ.
