The Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) coordinates diversity programs within the School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences (SES), facilitates partnerships between SES and private industry, and forms community alliances with Stanford and other universities. In recognition of the value of the unique perspectives and experiences derived from differences in race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, work experience, socio-economic class, national origin, and other diverse backgrounds, we strive to recruit and support a diverse faculty, staff, and student body, and to build collaborative national and international partnerships that aim to further research and education in the Earth sciences.
Through all of its intellectual, human, professional, historical, and physical resources, Stanford offers an excellent academic and social environment for diverse graduate students to pursue their goals. The university supports a lively mix of programs, organizations, and social events for our graduate students. Our ethnic and cultural community centers across campus sponsor social and educational events that encourage cross-disciplinary interactions. Please feel free to contact these centers for more information:
