The mission of UJIMA is to bring awareness of African, African-American and Caribbean cultures to the Skidmore campus and its neighboring community. Our main priority is to foster a better relationship with other clubs on campus through collective work and responsibility and become a safe place and resource to students.

Ujima meets every other Thursday at 7 p.m. in the Intercultural Center.
