Umoja Academic Success Program
Umoja is dedicated to enhancing the cultural and educational experiences of African Americans students and other students as a community while increasing graduation and transfer rates.
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 Diaspora.
To ensure and increase students' retention and persistence through graduation and the transfer process.
