Sam Houston Elite
Establishing Leadership In and Through Education
A comprehensive program for incoming minority men at
Sam Houston State University
Through generous sponsorships from a variety of sources, the SAM Center piloted the SH ELITE program with 30 young men in the 2010-2011 academic year. Major supporters included the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, Aramark, and SHSU's Vice President for Student Services and Multicultural and International Student Services Offices.
Sam Houston ELITE is established to promote academic development, as well as promote and encourage civic engagement. The program ultimately serves to increase the rate at which SHSU retains and graduates men of color.
