Ujima is the third principle of Kwanzaa and embodies an active commitment to the collective and to shared liberation. Inherent to the principle of Ujima is sharing in one another's achievements and hardships. Ujima, as a practice, assumes that the reconstruction of the history and humanity of the African diaspora is a fundamental part of the struggle for human liberation.
The principle of Ujima serves as the foundation for this institute, which has been envisioned and developed by senior level leaders committed to investing in building successive generations of student affairs leaders with the knowledge, skills, and competencies to build vibrant, diverse, global, and socially just higher education environments.
ABOUT THE INSTITUTE MODEL
In this cohort-based institute, participants will learn from senior student affairs leaders, who will share their journeys, lessons, and advice. To facilitate learning and enrichment, participants will be grouped for some parts of the institute into functional level tracks and for other parts of the institute into small group cohorts.
This professional development pathways program is designed for self-identified Black and African American student affairs professionals with three or more years of higher education administrative experience. The application process will include an online form and submission of a current CV/resume.
- Chart a plan for professional growth that address key competencies, career discernment, and personal values

- Develop mentoring relationships with senior student affairs leaders invested in your success
