Welcome to Napa Valley College


Umoja, (a Kiswahili word meaning unity) is a community and critical resource dedicated to enhancing the cultural and educational experiences of African American and other students. The Umoja Community seeks to educate the whole student-mind, spirit, and body. We believe that when the voices and histories of African American students are deliberately and intentionally recognized it will help students experience themselves as valuable and worthy of an education.

Program Learning Outcome #1. Acquire academic skills, self-management, self-discipline and an understanding of the matriculation process through the college experience. Program Learning Outcome #2. Acquire a keener sense of self-awareness by demonstrating an understanding of African-American history and culture and their relationship to them through cultural activities and discussion. Program Learning Outcome #3. Acquire communication skills to create confidence.
