Building Brotherhood, Building Leaders: Implementing an Anti-racist Leadership Development Program for Men of Color on College Campuses
In 2010, the Percy E. Sutton SEEK Program at CUNY Baruch College implemented the Urban Male Leadership Academy Scholars Program (UMLA) to increase the recruitment, enrollment and retention rates of Black and Latino males. Using an anti-racist framework, UMLA students receive peer mentoring, tutoring, attend monthly workshops and enroll in Black and Latino Studies and leadership courses. Structured as a working group presentation, presenters will share program outcomes and participants will learn strategies to implement anti-racist programs for men of color.
