What is BrotherHOOD Scholars?

The BrotherHOOD (Helping Others Obtain Degrees) Scholars Program is a first-year student experience designed to increase retention and graduation rates for students identifying as Men of Color. The BrotherHOOD Scholars program is run through Academic Success Partnerships (ASP), which is committed to creating an inclusive environment focused on ensuring students, often from under-represented populations, are not marginalized or under-emphasized on campus.

Through collaborative university partnerships, the BrotherHOOD Scholars Program guides students in their transition to college providing a residential community, designated courses, dialogues, mentorship and workshops. Dedicated staff facilitate programming centered around three key developmental areas: academic, human and socio-cultural. Students are connected to staff, faculty, alumni and community members to provide a network of support along their collegiate journey.
