"Make It Happen" African-American Male Retention program

THE STORY:

OVERVIEW


Historically, African-American male students have been significantly  less successful than their female and white counterparts relative to  retention and graduation rates. Southside Virginia Community College  initiated MAKE IT HAPPEN in the fall of 1998 in an effort to enhance the  academic success of these students. This comprehensive program provides  meaningful activities for participants and establishes an institutional  climate supportive of the success of African-American males. 


GOALS


 MAKE IT HAPPEN is designed to: 

  • Ensure the availability of academic support services in subject areas determined by individual student needs
  • Ensure meaningful contact between program participants and college faculty and staff
  • Promote academic achievement as evidenced by a GPA of 2.0 or better,  continued enrollment through three semesters, and graduation and/or  transfer within six semesters of enrollment
