Welcome to the Ensuring College Success Umoja Program

ECS - What is Umoja?Umoja logo

Umoja: a Kiswahili word meaning Unity

Our Umoja program is designed to support the persistence and retention of African/African American students toward defined educational goals: Certificates of Achievements, Associate Degree and University Transfer. Our program includes Instructional and Student Services support. We collaborate with local campuses and other state-wide programs.

Mission Statement
