We all want success for multicultural males in college, but how do we get there? Success for this population is largely dependent on the right mix of ingredients - engagement, connection, and mentoring being key components. Holistic success coaching is a powerful tool for campuses looking to connect with their multicultural male population. With significant focus on the mentoring relationship, colleges that employ holistic success coaching are seeing positive spikes in performance, increased connection with faculty and staff, and increased participation in campus activities.

In this webinar, we will demonstrate how to create environments conducive to student success for multicultural males. By focusing on the effects of mentoring and success coaching for this student population, we will share successful, data-based engagement and retention strategies. We will also discuss student classification levels, building student accountability and ownership, success coaching techniques, internal and external engagement, and collaborative use of campus activities and resources. Participants will learn how to measure and increase institutional readiness and capacity, as well as how to effectively engage minority males in the campus climate. Many of the strategies presented can be used to develop comprehensive mentoring programs for males that will improve retention and graduation rates.
