The Health Sciences-Office of Multicultural and Community Affairs Office, (HS-MACA) was created in 2000 to help Creighton University in the recruitment, retention, training and development of diverse future leaders for an increasingly multicultural society.
HS-MACA provides support and retention services to students by providing diversity awareness to the entire campus community. HS-MACA also promotes diversity through collaboration with other health sciences schools in the recruitment of a diverse student body in the Creighton University Health Sciences Schools. In addition, HS-MACA promotes local involvement in multicultural communities, civic functions, and community service organizations at Creighton University.
This effort of the department of HS-MACA is to reduce health disparities in underserved and diverse communities through research, culturally proficient education, community interactions and engagement.
