Description

For First-Year Experience, College Orientation, Student Success, Student Development, or Special Populations Student Success courses (e.g., African American males, men of color, marginalized men). Attractive to institutions that focus on or have high enrollments of men of color.

The College Experience for Men of Color is the only book on the market with research-based content and activities that speak directly to men of color enrolled in college.

This text, "keeps it real," as the saying goes, and has the courage to address pressing issues facing black men today. It includes profiles written by successful students and working professionals who come from a variety of backgrounds to provide insight into handling college challenges from a black male's perspective. Each content unit begins with a part of black history that students may not be familiar with to open discussion about people and events that have affected the black experience in America. Activities reinforce critical topics of each unit (ie. - time management, learning styles, study skills) to encourage them to create relationships that take advantage of campus resources, become involved and proactive about success, and navigate barriers that prevent them from getting support. Opportunities to reflect on their experience are found throughout.
