The Health Sciences-Office of Multicultural and Community Affairs Office, (HSMACA) 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.
