Umoja_University_2017_Save_the_Date.jpegCelebrating 10 years of Learning, Building and Growing!

Umoja University continues to be an integral step in our schools' year-long partnerships with Umoja!

This highly interactive three-day institute offers a deep dive into Umoja's partnerships by practicing and exploring research-based strategies that develop college-going, career-focused, restorative cultures within classrooms and throughout  school communities.

Participants learn the basic and intermediate principles of restorative justice, foundations of experiential learning, Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) standards and how they apply to everyday practice and effective methods for guiding students to a postsecondary plan. 

Participants walk away with tangible tools and strategies for student engagement and culture-building, as well as a deeper understanding of key restorative justice, social-emotional learning and college and career readiness topics. 

Umoja University is scheduled for August 22nd - 24th at Robert Morris University located in downtown Chicago, IL. For more information, email Dawn Hicks, Chief Program Officer, at dhicks(at)umojacorporation.org.
