Morehouse College is joining a renewed national effort to educate and support young, African-American men. Dr. John Silvanus Wilson said recently that won’t mean rolling out a specific new program, but it will include a variety of adjustments at the historically black college that results in a rejuvenated approach to producing the “Morehouse man.”
The University of Georgia has launched a $10,000 program billed as a way to attract more black males to the student body. The University of Georgia has some of the highest retention and graduation rates of African-American males in the country. But the problem isn't retaining African-American male students. It's getting them in the door in the first place.
