The Minority Male Success Initiative: A Redesign

Beginning with the 2016-17 academic year, the NC Community College System (NCCCS) redesigned the Minority Male Mentoring Program to more closely align with student success initiatives currently taking place throughout the system.  This new model is designed to strengthen minority male student outcomes by encouraging participation and collaboration among student participants and institutional departments.  To help achieve the stated goal, the NCCCS is seeking for colleges to make a three-year commitment to assess and enhance the student success outcomes of minority male students. The primary reasons for the redesign are to:

  1. Increase student success
  2. Maximize student and campus participation
  3. Increase program effectiveness and efficiency
