MMI's Mission

My Story, My Power

Our instincts and experience informed us, our data and research confirmed it.  Minority male students were simply not achieving on par with all other students. This was not acceptable. Like other colleagues at other colleges, where and how do we start? We began by listening to our students’ voices. They trusted us to tell their stories and their personal experiences with multitudes of life setbacks. And then they told us what we needed to do to improve our success rates with such students: to reach out more to our students, make connections, provide more academic support to build upon their connections, teach them about themselves, and enhance support services. 

The Minority Male Initiative is designed to study, recommend, pilot, train, enlighten, share, and inspire our students, faculty, staff, and managers to address inequities in student success for a large segment of our student population. After all, it takes a village to get through higher education, so we do it together.
