Boosting College Success Among Men of Color: Promising Approaches and Next Steps

Summarizes a scan of 82 programs and support services at postsecondary institutions around the country that are targeted to the needs of male students of color. A review of the research literature suggests that three broad drivers inhibit the attainment of both two- and four-year college degrees among male students of color: low levels of college preparation and academic achievement before and during college; barriers to persistence such as a lack of financial support or working full time while enrolled; and inadequate social, emotional, or academic support.
