Overview:
Reaching men of color during their first year of college is essential to secure the academic future of the United States. According to the College Board Advocacy and Policy Center, “If present levels of education and current population trends hold, the United States will see a decline in the educational attainment of the country as a whole. The goal of ensuring the future global competitiveness of the U.S. cannot be met without the full participation of our nation's young men of color.”

This webinar will present methods for implementing a targeted First-Year Experience Success Course for Men of Color. By rearranging course content based on student self-assessments, and using tools such as a Common Reader targeted toward the interests and needs of the students, co-curricular activities, a customized textbook, and study and accountability teams, colleges can be more successful in capturing this high-risk group during a vulnerable stage of life. We will cover the history and expansion of a First-Year Experience Success Course for African-American males. Participants will gain information about the unique features of this program that promotes engagement and success. We will discuss data gathered for assessment purposes, including attendance, test scores, timeliness, quality of assignments, class preparation, retention, and grades. We will also compare the success of students enrolled in this specialized course compared to students enrolled in the regular First-Year Experience Course.
