What is the Collegiate 100?
The Collegiate 100 program (formerly called African American Male Initiative) was established at St. Philip’s College in 2004. The Collegiate 100 is a programmatic arm of 100 Black Men of America, Incorporated. The organization extends the 100's mission on college and university campuses across America. Each chapter is a responsible, productive and cooperative segment of 100 Black men, the college and surrounding communities. It is a highly focused and intensive culturally centered support program designed to increase retention and academic success of minority male students.
The focus of the initiative is student persistence, success and graduation. We achieve these objectives by helping students identify campus resources; providing support through mentoring to help the student navigate his academic experience; and engaging students in campus activities and social networks. The Collegiate 100 program continues to strive toward these objectives. These students are mentored by the Men of SPC, a group of faculty, staff, and administrators who meet regularly with them to foster and nurture a relationship.
