& Building Community
ELITE (Establishing Leadership In & Through Education) is a minority male success program designed to support and empower male students from minority backgrounds to achieve academic and personal success in college. Our program provides a range of services and resources aimed at addressing the unique challenges faced by minority male students.
Our program components include:
Community building: Opportunities for students to connect with one another and build a supportive community on campus, often through social events, small groups and brotherhood roundtables.
Mentoring: Participants are paired with peer-mentors who provide academic and personal guidance and support.
Leadership development: Participants engage in leadership development opportunities, such as leadership training workshops, community service projects, and networking events. This engagement helps students develop the skills and confidence to become leaders on campus and in their communities.
The ultimate goal of ELITE is to empower students to succeed academically, personally, and professionally, and to help them become leaders in their communities. By providing tailored support and resources, ELITE helps close achievement gaps and develop the next generation of Black & Hispanic leaders.
