What is required of students who are selected for the Ujima Program?

All students accepted into the Ujima Program are projected to succeed through rigorous and challenging curriculum. This Program was specifically designed for the unique experiences of African American students. The expectation for Ujima students is quite high. Research has shown that students who have additional support, resources and expectation from faculty and staff members react more responsibly and achieve higher rates of academic success. As a first year experience program, Ujima students will gain the skills necessary to be a competitive college student. These skills are acquired through course completion, tutoring, mentorship, counseling, peer learning and motivation. Ujima students will develop a new sense of dedication to OUR community while learning ways to be contributing members of a global society.

*If you are working and in the Ujima Program, it is strongly recommended that your hours not exceed 20 per week. (See Ms. Lopez for further info on this matter).
