The MMM Program was developed to increase graduation and retention rates among minority males in North Carolina Community Colleges and other institutions of higher learning. Additionally, this program assists colleges in providing programs, activities, leadership opportunities, and experiences to promote the development of personal, professional, and academic skills of program participants. To accomplish this, the MMM Programs have created programming and partnerships with community, state, and corporate entities.
Currently, there are forty MMM Programs operating within the community college system. The colleges represent a number of regions within the state and serve populations with various needs. Because of the different dynamics of the students served, each program is diverse in its approach.
