The consortium provides professional development, information sharing, resources, and strategic coalition building among member colleges and their educators. Become a part of a community of learners who are engaged in collective sensemaking, organizational learning, and change to enhance outcomes for these men.
Many community colleges have programs, initiatives, or general efforts designed to enhance outcomes for historically underrepresented and underserved men, particularly men of color. However, the efficacy of these efforts can be enhanced through ongoing support, development, and information sharing with colleagues who are engaged in similar efforts.
Nationally, only 17% and 15% of Black and Latino men earn a certificate, degree, or transfer from a community college to a four-year institution in six years. These rates are far below that of their peers and serve as a clarion call for enhanced efforts to improve completion outcomes.
To date, over 100 college and university campuses have become part of the consortium.
The NCCMC is supported by CCEAL’s affiliate partners Achieving the Dream, Inc., African American Male Education Network and Development (A2MEND), American College Personnel Association (ACPA) – College Student Educators International, The Association of Community College Trustees, The National Association of Diversity Officers in Higher Education (NADOHE), The Community College League of California, and Project MALES.
