About the Program

Male Mentoring Initiative Mission is to create an atmosphere of academic, social, and professional success for male students enrolled at Florida International University. Male Mentoring Initiative seeks to develop male college students using a curriculum model. These points include: Nurture Diversity, Global Engagement, Civic Responsibility and Commitment, and Academic Success. This program provides the support strategies that fosters retention and higher graduation rates.
