Partnership with Umoja program helps community college students achieve

UC Riverside transfer student Latasha Murray went back to school as a 33-year-old mother of four, with the hopes of ultimately going on to medical school. She’s thriving as a university student, but acknowledges that the transition from work to life as a college student wouldn’t have been possible without the friends and advisers she found through Moreno Valley College’s Umoja program.

“It’s much more than a student group — it’s a family,” Murray said.
