About Umoja SJCC
Named for the Kishwahili word meaning "unity," Umoja is a community of educators and learners committed to the academic success, personal growth, and self-actualization of African American and other students.
The Umoja Community Program at SJCC envelops students in a supportive atmosphere designed specifically to increase retention, graduation, and transfer rates for students of African ancestry and other underserved populations. We believe that by honoring student voices, intertwining them with the rich intellectual and cultural traditions of the African and African American diaspora, we lay the foundation for personal, academic, and career leadership.
