Program Initiated

This program was initiated through the efforts of our Grant Writer and College President.  Northeastern Technical College qualified for the program based on the college's enrollment being 45% African American and after this was met the college saw the needs of this population could be addressed by securing this grant.  Its purpose is to assist African American Males to reach their educational outcomes.

Program Funded

This program is funded by a two year grant that was provided by the US Department of Education.

College President and Administrators Involvement

The College Administrators and President are very involved in this program because the program's services impact the entire college.  They all have a vested interest in this program being successful.

Program Success Story

This program has been great for Northeastern Technical College.  Before its inception and launch the African American male retention rate was the lowest at a little over 50% in 2008.  Our recent numbers indicate that the retention rate for this group has increased to 86%.  This group rose from the lowest retained group to the highest retained group because of the services of this program.
