What is Mosaics?
Mosaics is a student-driven initiative under the Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) that provides an online resource for communication among multicultural students at Willamette. The site is a social media platform that can be utilized for networking, contact between clubs and friends, as well as a virtual forum that facilitates discussion and dialogue around issues of multiculturalism at Willamette. The purpose of Mosaics is to build a greater sense of community among Willamette’s multicultural student population by allowing them the opportunity to connect with others as academic peers, fellow club members, and, above all, friends.
How was Mosaics started?
During the 2010-2011 academic year, a student named Jillian Toda (class of 2012) started Mosaics as part of a class project for an American Ethnic Studies (AES) course at Willamette. The idea grew into a project in conjunction with Gordy Toyama, the Director of the Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA). With the help of the OMA Peer Mentor(s), Mosaics is sustaining itself to continue today.
