The Village

Our Village—located in the Social Sciences Hub on the top floor of Building 9—provides a space for Umoja students, Social Science students, and Honors students to call their own: a space where cultural diversity in general and Black culture and Black excellence in particular are not only welcomed, valued, and honored but celebrated as an essential thread in the fabric of the Cañada College Community.

The Village is a space where you can work on your school subjects, study with classmates, hold a club meeting, meet with Umoja staff and faculty, relax and socialize, and just let you be you as you work towards your academic goals.


Community Guidelines

This is a student-driven space to be considered your home away from home. We welcome your positive and respectful:

  • language
  • use of the space
  • appropriate behavior

Please remember to be considerate of the two primary functions of the Village: it is alternately a quiet academic space as well as a social area! Respect for your Umoja/Social Science/Honors peers is expected and greatly appreciated. With that said, take care of the Village as you would your own home, come on in and enjoy!
