Building Better Men for Greater Success
The Male Success Initiative (MSI) is an enrichment program for male students, particularly men of color, that provides professional, academic, and personal development. MSI helps participants develop a game plan for success, from orientation to graduation.
Who should participate in the MSI?
GSU male students of color who are committed to their success no matter what. The MSI does not operate within traditional deficit model approaches. Instead, we believe in giving our students the tools needed to succeed academically, compete globally, and develop professionally. No matter where you start, if your success is important to you, then it's important to the Male Success Initiative.
Why should I join the Male Success Initiative?
Participants of the MSI benefit from unique and targeted on- and off-campus opportunities that contribute to their personal and professional success:
- Engage participants in robust, yet candid dialogue about identity, goals, and the barriers that tend to impede their collective and individual progress.
- Encourage participants' awareness of, and exposure to, the diversity of their history and of society through cultural exploration to museum exhibits, performances, and guest speakers.
- Equip all participants for academic success through curricular enhancement activities such as workshops on effective study habits, periodic monitoring of classroom progress, as well as study tables and faculty-led support sessions.
- Empower participants to promote servant leadership by giving back to the community and developing and coordinating civic engagement endeavors, on- and off-campus.
