The mission of the National Consortium on College Men of Color (NCCMC) is to support 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. To fulfill this agenda, the consortium provides professional development, information sharing, resources, and strategic coalition building among member colleges and their representatives.

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.

NCCMC is dedicated to linking research and evaluation to practice and policy.
