Brother to Brother (B2B) is an Urban Male Initiative Program, that applies four programmatic pillars (leadership development, social integration, academic support, and career preparation) to increase the retention and graduation rates of male students of color at MSU Denver and to meet the future workforce needs in the local, national, and global economy.
“Education leads to enlightenment. Enlightenment opens the way to empathy. Empathy foreshadows reform.” -Derrick Bell
To empower male students of color at the Metropolitan State University of Denver to be leaders of the community, obtain academic success, and to be agents of change in the workforce.
All male students are eligible to participate in program activities. However, all programming and activities will have an intentional focus on the issues impacting male students of color.
Given the national data on student success, it is important to expose males to programming that promotes their ability to move toward their goals and aspirations. Since male students will have differing needs and interests, the program presents a well-rounded set of approaches to meet their needs.
