Office of Diversity & Minority Affairs (ODAMA)
Through its recruitment efforts, ODAMA serves to create a pipeline of qualified underrepresented students to JMC while strengthening its diversity efforts.
In addition, ODAMA has established an institutional framework that acknowledges diversity and promotes educational programs that increase awareness, understanding and sensitivity to the needs of all individuals regardless of age, class, physical ability, gender, race, religion or sexual preference. ODAMA serves to provide students with a cooperative, safe and supportive environment.
