History Information

In August 2009, the Office of Student Engagement and Multicultural Affairs formally came to be, encompassing the efforts of the former Office of Multicultural Affairs, Office for New Student Programs, and Center for Student Leadership & Involvement. Several years ago, it became clear that the work of each office was integral to the work of the others, and the staff members began to collaborate. In September 2006, the individual offices moved to one physical location, and the staff continued to craft intentional, comprehensive programs to engage Ithaca College students. We are proud to now work together as one unit to enhance the Ithaca College experience and further our students' learning.

In June 2018, OSEMA was restructured into three separate offices:

  • Office of Student Engagement
  • New Student and Transition Programs
  • Center for Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, And Social change (IDEAS)
