Ubuntu

 

Established in 2014, Ubuntu fosters a culture of belonging and inclusion for those who have an interest in African and Caribbean culture at the University of Miami.

Ubuntu provides a vehicle for any employee (faculty and staff) to engage with one another around topics of interest to the UM Afro-Caribbean community. The intention of Ubuntu is to

  • Provide personal and professional development through mentoring, volunteerism and community involvement
  • Provide career advice and mentoring for Caribbean student organizations
  • Embrace a culture of belonging and build awareness and appreciation for diversity

The word Ubuntu comes from a way of defining humanity in Southern Africa, which translates to  “I exist because you exist, if you are not well, I am not well”, which epitomizes our culture of belonging at UM.
