Everything students can expect to gain!
We have counselors that help students create academic goals. Meet with an Umoja Counselor to review Educational Plan, discuss career goals, transfer opportunities and more. Students may book an appointment below!
We are here to support your mental health and wellness. Just like our physical health, our minds are just as important in being supported and taken care of. To access this free service, please call (714) 992-7093 to meet with a mental health professional.

Our Porch Talks are a safe space for Umoja Scholars to build a sense of connectedness with others and learn to advocate for themselves while discussing important topics in the Black/African community. These recurring, student-led conversations “should be open, respectful, playful; there should be argument, dissection and revision. It should be personal, political and philosophical. The porch can often be candid and sometimes even painful…such honesty and visibility can produce frustration and also acceptance. Needless to say, trust is at the foundation of a Porchtalk learning environment and trust has to be earned, modeled, practiced, openly reflected upon, and revisited,” (Umoja Practices, Page 2 of 6).
- Both virtual and in-person discussions will take place throughout the Spring 2023 semester. Please visit https://fcumojalinks.carrd.co/ to stay updated on event dates.
