The OMA is located in the Martin Luther King Jr. Center (MLKC), which serves as an educational safe zone for individuals of all backgrounds, nationalities, abilities, ethnic groups, sexual orientations, religions, and social identities. The MLKC is dedicated to helping students cope with the challenges associated with succeeding and graduating from Mansfield University. The primary task of the MLKC is to advance and celebrate the diversity of our campus community and to advocate for the needs of its students.
The MLKC, in collaboration with Multicultural Affairs and other Campus Diversity Partners, provides programs, conferences, educational tours, and cross-cultural activities that promote the exchange of cultural experiences. The MLKC houses these and other references materials available on loan for employee and student use:
- Wide screen TV

The MLKC also serves as a location for community, club, and small group meetings, mentoring and tutoring sessions, personal development and diversity training workshops, cultural receptions, and multicultural celebrations.
