Kujenga is the only NDSU Diversity Leadership Retreat of it's kind! Enjoy engaging workshops on how to lead across cultures as well as meet other students wanting to improve their skills as a leader. Of course, Kujenga is held at an amazing retreat center called, "Castaway"! You will relax in-between workshops in a large game room, playing basketball in a large indoor gym or enjoy broomball outdoors! This retreat is for students from all backgrounds. But hurry, only 40 students are admitted to each year's retreat!
This year's retreat features the incredibly realistic simulation of the Underground Railroad. Learn about the staggering voyage of thousands of slaves during one of the most trying points in America's history. Interact with live actors as they provide you with a glimpse of the trials and tribulations of the Underground Railroad.
Though no simulation can provide you with the intense reality of what slaves experienced, NDSU's "Kujenga-The Underground Railroad Experience", is committed to providing participants with an experience to help uncover the facts of history, an educational experience never before experienced, and to act as a tribute to those heroes who ultimately created a path for all those who bravely embarked on this journey to freedom. Join us for NDSU's "Kujenga-The Underground Railroad Experience".
