The National Consortium on College Men of Color (NCCMC) supports postsecondary institutions in building the capacity necessary to advance outcomes for college men of color. This mission is carried out through development activities and convenings that builds a community of learners who can engage in collective sensemaking, organizational learning, and change. NCCMC member institutions are comprised of public and private community colleges and four year universities. The consortium efforts prioritize men who have been historically underserved in postsecondary education. As a result, intensive focus is given to African-American, Latino, Southeast Asian, Native American, and Pacific Islander men.
The Minority Male Community College Collaborative (M2C3) is a national research and practice center of CCEAL that partners with community colleges to support their capacity in advancing outcomes for men of color. The center has partnered with more than 100 community colleges across the nation to better understand challenges and design institutional interventions focused on these men. M2C3 has developed rigorously validated tools for assessing institutional efforts and outcomes relevant to men of color. These instruments include the Community College Survey of Men (CCSM), Community College Student Success Inventory (CCSSI), Community College Insights Protocol (CCIP), Male Program Assessment for College Excellence (M-PACE), and the Community College Instructional Development Inventory (CC-IDI). M2C3 houses the National Consortium on College Men of Color (NCCMC) which host trainings, information sharing sessions, and provides resources to colleges with initiatives and programs supporting college men of color.
