Men of Color Focus Group Manual
Center for Community College Student Engagement
The Center for Community College Student Engagement received funding from"The Kresge Foundation to deepen its work on improving outcomes for men of color in community colleges. The primary goals of the initiative were: (1) to advance the understanding within the community college field regarding the assets and challenges that men of color brought to college with them; (2) to lift up the student voice as central to the work; (3) to identify institutional factors that inhibited or enhanced community college progress and success for Black males and Latinos; and (4) to assist community colleges in serving these groups. This manual was originally designed as part of the initiative to conduct focus group sessions at six participating colleges and has been adapted for wider use. These structured discussions will help the college better understand students' experiences, as well as uncover possible strategies to consider for improvement. This manual also contains an appendix of templates designed to help Coordinators facilitate the focus groups and may be modified to best meet the needs of the institution. [This manual was produced as part of the Center initiative Improving Outcomes for Men of Color in Community Colleges.]
