Umoja Club

The Umoja club, (a Kiswahili word meaning unity) is a community and critical resource dedicated to enhancing the cultural and educational experiences of African American and other students who are affiliated with the African Diaspora. We believe that when the voices and histories of students are deliberately and intentionally recognized, the opportunity for self-efficacy emerges and a foundation for academic success is achieved.

Some of the club activities will involve: 

  • Developing strong bonds among the African American students on campus
  • Hosting special  musical and cultural events during Black History Month
  • Taking tours to HBCU’s (Historically Black Colleges and Universities)
  • Inviting prominent African American Speakers to campus
  • Doing Services Projects on the campus and in the wider community 

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