About Us!


Welcome to the Holmes Cultural Diversity Center at Mississippi State University. Formerly known as the Office of Minority Affairs, the Holmes Cultural Diversity Center was renamed & dedicated to Dr. Richard E. Holmes, the first African American alumnus of MSU, in 1991. The Holmes Cultural Diversity Center strives to enhance the college experience of culturally diverse students here at MSU. Many students who interact with the center consider it to be a “home away from home.
