UMOJA's mission is "to educate on, spread awareness of and celebrate the cultures of people of color with a focus on those of African descent. This is however, an inclusive environment and safe space for all marginalized groups to discuss and relate cross-cultural experiences in a positive atmosphere. [The members] seek to grow and learn as individuals and as a community."

Our mission is for every student to think critically, reason wisely and act humanely as they cultivate meaningful lives. On our beautiful lakeside campus, students gain the knowledge, skills and experience to create their own unique path.
