UJIMA Education Office
"Education is your passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today." --Malcolm X
Welcome to OSU for the new and transfer students and welcome back to the returning students! For those of you who do not know me, my name is Earlean Wilson Huey and I am the Ujima Education Office Coordinator. It is my pleasure to serve as the Ujima Coordinator because it affords me an opportunity to assist Black students in achieving their desired goals. The purpose of the Ujima Education Office is to assist African, African American, and multiracial students of African descent with their development culturally, academically, and socially. I am very committed to creating UNITY within OSU's BLACK community and also focus a lot on the retention of Black students. If you are struggling in your classes, please see me Early!! It will be too late if you wait until finals week to inform me you're having problems. Additionally, I assist students with any problem they may have, whether it is roommate issues, racial incidences, personal, etc. (Confidentiality is guaranteed). I will do everything within my power to help you be successful at OSU. Please do not hesitate to stop by my office, which is located on the first floor of the Kerr Administration Bldg. or call on me at 737-9032 for any assistance you need. If I cannot assist you I will do my best to make referrals to other sources that may be of assistance. Again, welcome to OSU! Peace and blessings.....
Note: Thank you for visiting the Ujima Education Office web page. Here, we provide an informational as well as interactive site for current, potential and new students. Visitors have online access to information regarding resources, events and programs available to African and African-American students on the Oregon State University campus as well as the surrounding communities.
The purpose of the Ujima Education Office is to assist African/African American students with their development culturally, educationally, and socially. Retention is the heart of Ujima and recruitment is the natural extension.Promoting campus based groups and programs are essential. Equally important is fostering relationships within Corvallis and surrounding communities to help build an exciting atmosphere for recruitment.
