WHAT IS UMOJA LEARNING COMMUNITY?

Umoja, (a Kiswahili word meaning unity) is a learning community and critical resource dedicated to enhancing the cultural and educational experiences of  Black/African American and other students.

We believe that when the voices and histories of students are deliberately and intentionally recognized, the opportunity for self-efficacy emerges and a foundation is formed for academic success. 

Umoja actively serves and promotes student success for all students through a curriculum and pedagogy responsive to the legacy of the African and African American Diasporas.
