Due to COVID-19, our Summer Learning Institue was postponed, but we are pleased to share that we are bringing it to you this winter!The Summer Learning Institute (SLI) is an intensive retreat designed for Umoja Community program staff and Umoja college stakeholders and administrators. The training focuses on immersing attendees in the philosophy, pedagogy, theoretical foundations, and best practices based on the Umoja Community model. Educators from California Community Colleges have the opportunity to engage in courageous and bold discussions with other Umoja Community program staff. Participants are encouraged to attend as a college team, as they are given the opportunity to discuss and refine their programs based on information learned at the institute. Examples of content presented at the SLI include program structure and implementation, elements of African customs and rituals, and cultural applications for teaching English, math, and college success/guidance courses.
