OMSA Welcomes New Leader
Charles C.M. Kellom joined OWU as assistant dean for multicultural student affairs on Oct. 16. He oversees the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, which supports underrepresented students within the campus community to encourage their personal and academic success as well as their persistence to graduation.
Kellom was previously director of multicultural student affairs at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. Originally from Cincinnati, Kellom said he is excited to return to Ohio and to become part of the Ohio Wesleyan community.
“Students of color, LGBTQIA students, lowincome and/or first-generation students, and any student looking to learn more about identity, power, privilege, or social justice will find a home at the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs,” Kellom said. “I’m excited to collaborate with my new colleagues at OWU in the development of strategies for student success.”
Kellom reports to Kristin Weyman, Ohio Wesleyan’s associate dean for student success.
