Office of Cultural and Academic Transitions Annual Open House (Virtual)
The Office of Cultural and Academic Transitions (OCAT) constructs supportive communities that actively involve students in learning. OCAT Offers hundreds of programs and activities centered on student success. The scope of these student success initiatives focus on identity development, transition, social justice issues, building community, empowerment, belonging and leadership development. The heritage and awareness programs demonstrate a strong tradition at Michigan State University of honoring historical context, exploring culturally significant events and raising visibility of communities who have historically been minoritized. All MSU, staff, community and students are invited to this open house.
