Our office endeavors to pursue, promote and maintain programs that will heighten the awareness, presence and success of minorities and other under–represented groups on the campus of Eastern Illinois University.

The Office of Minority Affairs was created in 1990 to coordinate a variety of minority programs and to deal with the problems and concerns of a diverse student population.

Our staff offers personal support, answers questions, provides information on special scholarships and internships, dispenses relevant academic information, and provides general information on campus life and social activities. In addition, the office monitors campus climate, collects data and acts as general ombudsman for minority student problems.
