Purposeful Theme

A new theme house for African-American and other minority women opens this fall on campus. Jumba La Nia, which means “House of Purpose” in Swahili, is going to be the home of five women who have a goal of developing and enriching the lives of minority women. The group hopes to increase minority student enrollment by empowering high school students to the point they consider college, says Paul James, director for multicultural affairs.
