Moving Men of Color Forward
From Jeff Layne
Coordinator, Fraternity and Sorority Affairs
One of the goals of the system-wide California State University Graduation Initiative is to close the achievement gap in graduation rates between Underrepresented Minority (URM) and non-URM students by 2025. In this presentation Malcolm McLemore shows a short video that illustrates, through national statistics, some of the challenges that men of color face in order to get a college education. He then presents data specifically about men of color at Chico State. McLemore lists ways to assist these students through mentorship from faculty/staff men of color, peer advisors, leadership development, and institutional support. A discussion follows about how to help male students of color achieve their full potential.
