Report of the Partnership Opportunities Subcommittee. The University System of Georgia's Task Force on Enhancing Access for African-American Males.
Georgia Univ. System, Atlanta. Board of Regents.
This report presents, in outline form, an overview of the purpose and activities of the Partnership Opportunities Subcommittee of the Task Force for Enhancing Access for African American Males of the University System of Georgia. The Subcommittee is charged with identifying a wide array of educational, civic, and business organizations to serve as partners in this initiative and developing formal partnerships and linkages with these organizations. To identify potential partner organizations, the Subcommittee looked at national programs, including "Gear-UP" of the U.S. Department of Education, the TRIP program, and National Science Foundation programs. State programs were also studied, as were nonprofit-based initiatives and programs of private corporations and foundations. Four programs that were identified as providing "best practices" in African American male initiatives were: (1) the African American Male Leadership Academy at Kansas University; (2) the College Success Prep Program of the University of Maryland; (3) "Call Me MISTER" at Clemson University and three historically black colleges; and the COACH College Program at Harvard University. Recommendations are made for ways to identify what will work best for the University System of Georgia. Contact information is provided for the programs described. (SLD)
