The BrotherHOOD Scholars Community is part of a university- wide initiative designed to engage and foster a stronger sense of community for men of color at EMU. Through collaborative partnerships on campus and in the community, this initiative strives to help more men of color persist and show participating in specific success-driven activities can benefit men of color regardless of their prior level of academic achievement.
BrotherHOOD Scholars Community Pillars
Healthy Relationships: BrotherHOOD provides engagement and mentoring for participants, including those living in the community with them. Informal and formal gatherings (such as the BrotherHOOD Barbershop, open to all) create safe spaces for men of color to foster stronger relationships with other male students, faculty and staff and to participate in intentional developmental conversation.
Productivity Goal-Setting: By providing support throughout the year, the BrotherHOOD Community encourages students to develop and articulate plans to achieve individual short- and long-term academic, professional and personal goals. Motivational speaker meetings and professional development workshops are held for Scholars, and UNIV Instructors serve as Academic Success Coaches throughout the first year.
Achievement and Leadership: Courses and leadership training help Scholars develop the skills to be successful in college and beyond. Students gain the knowledge, skills and attitudes to build a personal awareness of the world in which they live.
Persistence and Completion: Through collaborative partnerships on campus and in the community, the BrotherHOOD Community strives to help more men of color persist and graduate, and equip them with the tools to be successful once they earn their degrees. Participating as a Scholar will also show that specific success-driven activities can benefit students of color regardless of their prior level of academic achievement.
