Welcome to Merritt College -- SANKOFA
SANKOFA is an exciting initiative at Merritt College. Although the primary focus of the program is on the achievement of African-American students, Sankofa’s services are open to all students who desire the nurturing services offered by the program. The emphasis of the program is successful completion of English, mathematics, science, and information technology courses, while at the same time assisting students in exploring STEM disciplines and other subject areas as they prepare for their careers.
