“Improving the status of the African American male is a subset of bettering the conditions of the African American people”

-Carl Sharif, Public Affairs Strategist

Obtaining a thorough knowledge of available services, and the means to best utilize them is a constant challenge for new and continuing students. Our academic, service, and mentoring programs are designed to support African American males in their quest for a college degree.
