New Staff at OMA!!! Introducing Corey Torres!

This year, the office of Multicultural Affairs is glad to announce our new staff, Corey Torres.........

Corey Torres, is a native of Spanish Harlem, New York, and a Lawrence and Posse Alumni. He has distinct interest in health and wellness. He loves cycling long distances, and is now entering his 4th season playing semi-pro football. Corey is also a lyricist and has performed groundbreaking pieces in front of diverse crowds. His passion for life is driven by impacting others, and simply knowing his work of mentorship is conducive to growth in all walks of life. “There is no greater feeling than knowing I am fulfilling my life’s purpose, being aware, open and willing to learning from others, and most importantly, giving back! I come from a household built on love and compassion for the world. I was taught to always be grateful, and understanding when things do not go as expected. As a growing adult, these are now vital tools that I use in my approach to helping others move forward and finding their purpose in life. Ultimately, my goal is to reach out and touch as many people I can, simply because I care and genuinely want the absolute best for all around me.”  

Our Location

The Diversity Center is located on the lower level of Memorial Hall, across from the Viking Room (VR).  Check out the study room, kitchen, resource library, OMA offices, and chill with the staff.
