Umoja, a Kiswahili word meaning unity, is committed to enhancing the cultural and educational experiences and increasing the persistence and retention rates of African American and other students. The MiraCosta College Umoja Community actively serves and promotes success for all students through a curriculum responsive to the legacy of the African and African American Diasporas. The Umoja Community seeks to educate the whole student: mind, body, and spirit. Informed by an ethic of love and its vital power, Umoja deliberately engages students as full participants in the construction of knowledge and critical thought.

Students in the program receive career, academic, and personal counseling, and they experience curriculum and teaching practices that empower and increase self-efficacy.
