Umoja Black Community Engagement Program

The Umoja Black Community Engagement Program is dedicated to the academic, professional, and personal empowerment of the Ottawa regions’ African, Caribbean, and Black (ACB) communities.

  • We develop programming and events that strive to address the impact of anti-Black racism on educational and career outcomes for ACB students and youth.
  • We help ACB students and youth manage academic transitions, develop career-ready skills, and build personal connections.
  • We host public education programs and events that both seek to dismantle anti-Black racism in society and celebrate the lives and accomplishments of the ACB community.

Our events and programs are student-led, community-centred and open to ACB students, youth, educators, community members and allies.

The Umoja Program is managed by the Carleton University Student Experience Office and led by Graduate and Undergraduate students.
