Umoja University 2015


Umoja University is an important step in our schools' year-long partnerships with Umoja!

This hightly interactive four-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 the school community.

Participants learn the basic and intermediate principles of restorative practice, 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 Monday, July 27 to Thursday, July 30, 2015 at Dominican University in River Forest, IL. For more information or to register your team, email
