African American Male Initiative (AAMI)


The African American Male Initiative (AAMI) is a completion initiative designed to help young men find their passion, walk in their purpose, and reach their potential.

Specifically, the purpose of the program is to retain students from term to term, insuring that students maintain a GPA in good standing, experience personal and professional development, and complete their degree/certificate on time (within 2-3 years). This program is culturally relevant and supports men of color at their level of need, whether it is academic, professional, social, or emotional.
