Umoja is a Ki-Swahili (African) word for Unity.  And we know it takes a Village to raise a student's expectations.  Join the Umoja Village as we walk along with you toward your educational goals.  The investment you make in your education will sustain generations of your family yet unborn.  As a member of Umoja, you join the largest student body of African Americans West of the Mississippi. Go West.  Go Far.

West is Truthfully Best!
