Our Mission and Philosophy
The Moreno Valley College Umoja Community is dedicated to increase the number of educationally underserved students who enroll in our college, transfer to a four-year colleges or university, and return to the community as leaders and mentors for future generations. We also take a proactive approach to reaching and serving African American males,and other at-risk students in higher education.
The Umoja Community at MVC seeks to educate African American students about their African cultural heritage in order to promote and uplift an African American centered consciousness. The development of the academic, professional and leadership potential of African American students is centered on seven program principles: unity, self, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith. The development of the academic professionals, and leadership is reflected in the area of program identification of the needs and concerns of Moreno Valley College African American students and the development of interventions to address the needs and concerns in our community.
