Event description

Description

“I’m no longer accepting the things I cannot change...I’m changing the things I cannot accept.” Angela Davis.

This year’s theme calls participants to analyze issues pertaining to the African Diaspora that affect our community and explore solutions to undertake at their respective college campuses. The Umoja Conference XIV will feature discussions, panels, networking opportunities and social gatherings for over 1200 students and faculty from across the state. In the past, the Umoja Conference has hosted Dr. Cornel West and Tavis Smiley as Keynote Speakers. By entering this conference with an open spirit of exchange, we will challenge tradition while making space to explore our intersectional identities and bring change to our community!

Registration Fees: The registration is $495 per Faculty/Staff and $295 per Student and covers all meals [Friday breakfast and lunch; and Saturday breakfast and boxed lunch], all materials, and internet in meeting space.

Travel Information: You are responsible for your flight and other travel arrangements for this event. The Riverside Convention Center is located 20 miles from Ontario International Airport (ONT). Travel arrangements should be secured at least three weeks in advanced to secure the best rate. Coordinators may consider using the Southwest Airlines Group travel option. This allows for groups to book travel in advance and make name/traveler information changes up to 72 hours prior to travel date. Groups can also pay a deposit upon booking and the remaining balance at a later time. As this is only available for groups with a minimum of ten travelers, schools are encouraged to partner with other coordinators traveling from the same airport. More information can be found here.

If possible, we encourage you to share rides and explore all travel options.
