What programs does Office of Minority Education offer?

The MIT Office of Minority Education, OME, provides a home base for many of MIT’s underrepresented minority students.

OME’s mission is to promote academic excellence, build strong communities, and develop professional mindsets among students of underrepresented minority groups, with the ultimate goal of developing leaders in the academy, industry, and society.

Matriculation to one of the world’s top schools of science and engineering comes with inherent challenges of all kinds, and the OME works closely with students who are underrepresented, including African American, Native American, and Latino students, to ensure their academic success while building an essential community among undergraduates, faculty, and staff.
