2014 OMA Graduation Cord Nomination Form

Presented by the Columbia Office of Multicultural Affairs, the OMA Graduation Cords are given to graduating seniors in Columbia College, the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science, and the School of General Studies who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to diversity, social justice, and multiculturalism through the OMA, campus leadership, community involvement, academic endeavors, and/or personal dedication.

Worn in the various graduation ceremonies, the graduation cords are also a powerful visual symbol of our new graduates’ ongoing commitment as alumni in continuing and sharing the office's mission of advancing the strength within communities, acknowledging diversity in the different aspects of their lives, working toward social justice, honoring our different and intersecting legacies of struggle and survival, and building meaningful coalitions across different identities.
