African-American Male Initiative LLC

The African American Male Initiative Living Learning Community is a collaboration between the Cultural Center and the College of Arts and Sciences.

The community will be comprised of 28 students that will participate in structured learning experiences by taking two to four classes together, and participate in the African American Male Initiative (AAMI) during their first year. AAMI consists of academic engagement, mentor support, peer connection, and student involvement.  In addition, students in the living learning community will gain leadership skills through the student-managed chapter of the Student African American Brotherhood. Furthermore, the LLC will assist students in fostering relationships with Black Faculty and Staff at the University. This community is housed in Miller Hall. Learn more about Miller Hall here.
