Mission Statement

UMOJA is an organization that serves and is run by students of African descent. UMOJA is the only student group devoted solely to the interests of Black students and it's mission is threefold: to establish a support network among black students, promote social events open to the entire Hampshire community, the four surrounding area colleges, as well as exclusive events for members, and to encourage, through fundraising, and collaborations with the Admissions office, aggressive recruitment of minority students. UMOJA provides a forum for students of the African Diaspora to discuss issues concerning people of color in general and Black people specifically, on this campus and beyond. Umoja is a sub-group of SOURCE.


UMOJA (UNITY)(oo-MOE-jah). Celebrated on day one of Kwanzaa. This principle teaches striving for and maintaining unity in the family, community, nation, and race.

It serves as a support and educational structure for students of the African diaspora.
