Club Email: umoja@msjc.edu 

Club Description: Umoja (a Kiswahili word meaning unity ) is a learning community dedicated to the academic success, personal growth, and self-actualization of African-American and other students. All Umoja values and practices are inspired by African and African-American intellectual, cultural, and spiritual gifts. The Umoja community at MSJC is dedicated to its students and provided them with a "family" environment where individuals lift and support one-another. Those within Umoja understand the progress made by our ancestors and strive to be as strong as they were. The Umoja community understand that our ancestors come from royalty, yet, we are often only taught about the struggles since our ancestors have been enslaved. However, within Umoja , the knowledge of the rich culture of those from the African Diaspora is sought after to help build the strength and courage needed to navigate experiences in life and navigating college.
