"If they don't give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair" - Shirley Chisholm

This year’s theme calls participants to resist the status quo and mobilize our community to advocate for the needs of students, faculty and the community as a whole. The Umoja XV Conference will feature discussions, panels, networking opportunities and social gatherings for over 1200 students and faculty from across the state. In the past, the Umoja Conference has hosted Dr. Cornel West and Tavis Smiley as Keynote Speakers. By entering this conference with an open spirit of exchange, we will challenge tradition while making space to explore our intersectional identities and bring change to our community!
