Sankofa – Umoja is an exciting initiative at Merritt College. Although the primary focus of the program is on the achievement of African-American students, Umoja/Sankofa’s services are open to all students who desire the nurturing services offered by the program. The emphasis of the program is successful completion of English, mathematics, science, and information technology courses, while at the same time assisting students in exploring STEM disciplines and other subject areas as they prepare for their careers.
Sankofa – Umoja assists students in the development of Student Educational Plans (SEPs), selection of courses, addressing personal concerns, and connecting students to support services across the Merritt campus.
The Sankofa – Umoja office is located in R-106F and is staffed by Tauheeda Anderson and Counselor Derrick Ross. For more info, call (510) 464-3958 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
