A program at Prince George’s Community College is helping men of color graduate community college and go on to four-year institutions by meeting them where they are and helping them find their passion and purpose through mentorship, resources and support.
“In 2009 we realized that Black and brown men were going to college at higher numbers but they weren’t staying in,” Brian Hamlin, the program manager of the Diverse Male Student Initiative, said. “They were not being retained. They were dropping out.”
