Multicultural Affairs Department

What is the Multicultural Affairs Department?

OCC's Multicultural Affairs Department seeks to cultivate a multiethnic, multicultural campus and constituency by working across college departments to intentionally recruit and retain ethnic minority students and to increase campus and classroom cultural inclusivity.

The Ozark community is committed to honoring and broadening the ethnic 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 are a chance for OCC students, faculty, and staff to discuss difficult topics in the nation and the church. Most of the topics pertain to diversity, culture, and politics. Join us each month in the OCC Dining Hall from 12:15-1:15 p.m. For more information, contact Director of Diversity Matthew McBirth at [email protected] or 417.626.1289.

Watch for our fall 2020 Mosaic Lunch dates, coming soon!

Heritage Celebrations

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