Male Student Success

At North Carolina A&T, we are focused on addressing the impediments to academic success that in recent years have disproportionately affected young men. The issues that affect male student success are often complex, and our Male Student Task Force has been studying and addressing them now for more than two years.

The result of that work has been a series of new support programs and modest movement in the right direction in male student retention, persistence, and graduation. We're excited for our male students' progress, and are continuing this work to address a dynamic that is being seen and felt throughout higher education.

Aggie M.E.N. (Male Empowerment Network) was created to help our 1st year male students find academic and personal success.  Through a partnership with Mentor Collective, every male student that resides in Cooper Hall will be paired with a peer mentor (a 3rd or 4th year student).  We want to make sure that our freshmen have access to the resource and wisdom that comes from experience.  The freshmen will be surveyed and paired by major and interests through Mentor Collective.  Our mentors are trained to make sure that the first step for our freshmen is the right step.  Aggie M.E.N. is where our first year male students can get plugged into the village that makes up AGGIE PRIDE!

Male Student Success Committee. The umbrella group for male student success efforts at North Carolina A&T, the committee was created at the direction of Chancellor Harold L. Martin Sr. in 2017. It has undertaken a campus-wide inventory of efforts to foster male student success, as well as a rigorous analysis of program outcomes and efficacy. Chaired by Dr. Regina Williams-Davis, assistant provost for Student Success and Academic Support, the committee meets monthly and includes administrators, faculty and staff from across campus.
