The Umoja Community Education Foundation will hold two Regional Symposia this year, one for the Northern region and one for the Southern region. These symposiums will be held on March 15, 2019, at the University of California Davis campus and Chaffey College-Chino campus.
The purpose of the Regional Symposia is to bring together Umoja program faculty, staff, and students to learn from each other “in community.” Symposia are a one-day INDABA (a deep discussion) focusing on topics designed to strengthen Umoja programs and share culturally responsive strategies with community college practitioners. The Symposia provides current Umoja practitioners an opportunity to network and explore strategies to strengthen their programs. Students also gather and have a chance to share their perspectives on how Umoja educators can best serve them.
This year our Regional Symposia is focused on community building. The Umoja practice of being in community transcends our courses and services and reaches into the “I am, because you are." Thus, our symposia theme is “If they don't give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair” -Shirley Chisholm.
