July 2022 Summer Newsletter

July 5, 2022 | Summer Issue Vol. 2

Sawubona Umoja Community,

We hope you have experienced much joy, love, and relaxation during these early months of summer. We are excited about the upcoming Fall 2022 semester! As of now, we will primarily operate virtually in Fall 2022; however, we will also have some in-person celebrations and events to build community. As some of you know, we have officially moved to our temporary village space in the 1900 building in April 2022.

However, we hope to see all of our returning scholars and meet our new scholars at our upcoming in-person Scholar Orientation next month (register below). This month you can access our Laptop Lending Program Application and/or meet with an Academic Counselor. Our Nourish the Soul (grocery gift card support) will continue in August for Fall 2022.

As always, if there are any questions, concerns, or suggestions you may have please let us know by email or phone.

Be well,

Umoja Community Program Staff
