Umoja - Black Student Union
Umoja is a Swahili word meaning unity & reflects the African saying "I am because we are". This simple, yet powerful statement is what Umoja aims to embody. Although we are not an exclusive group and do open our doors to all of the Goucher community, we focus on the empowerment of the black students on campus. Our duty at Goucher is to provide a community that will help foster identity, self-worth, pride for our heritage, and fearlessness to initiate change. We recognize that without the support of our own community that success is difficult. It is only in accomplishing these goals and setting a foundation for ourselves will we be better equipped to empower the greater community around us. It is in this unity that we welcome all to share in our experiences!
