African American Male Initiative

AAMI stands for the African American Male Initiative. This Initiative is a group housed within the Multicultural Center.

Why join AAMI?

The African American Male Initiative’s primary goal is to ensure your academic career is a success. Our goal is to empower, support, and assist you in gaining your undergraduate degree in four years.

Students who participate in these initiatives have higher grades and graduate faster than their peers who do not participate in the program. They also develop invaluable networks that are beneficial in college and after graduation.
