About the Program
Umoja, a Kiswahili word meaning unity, is a year-long learning community dedicated to enhancing the cultural and educational experiences of African American and other students.
We actively serve and promote student success through a curriculum focused on the legacy of the African and African American diasporas.
Umoja scholars benefit from
- A tight-knit cohort community
- Comprehensive support programs
- Faculty, staff, and peer mentorship
- A dedicated academic counselor
- Free textbooks and school supplies
- Cohort courses in English, Math, Counseling, and Communications
- College tours, culturally relevant field trips, and conferences
The Proof is in the Faces
