The University System of Georgia's Task Force on Enhancing Access for African-American Males. Report of the Programs of Excellence Subcommittee.
Georgia Univ. System, Atlanta. Board of Regents.
The Task Force on Enhancing Access for African-American Males was charged with the task of finding programs that were successful in enhancing opportunities for African American men to enroll in higher education. Using data from a variety of sources, the subcommittee on Programs of Excellence identified seven programs in Georgia and eight national programs that might be replicated or duplicated by the University System of Georgia. Descriptions are provided of each of these programs, and contact information is included. The programs may be grouped into three categories: (1) pipeline initiatives; (2) preparation initiatives; and (3) retention and continuous education initiatives. These 15 programs may help the University System of Georgia find specific programs that could support access for African American males. (SLD)
