AfricanAmerican Male Initiative (AAMI)
AAMI is a University System of Georgia initiative designed to increase the recruitment, retention, and graduation of African-American males within the System through strategic interventions. The L.E.A.D. program at ABAC targets first semester African-American males with emphasis on first generation students and learning support requirements. The program is designed to promote a successful transition to college life by providing outreach and matriculation support to potential students and their families. Additional support services include housing coordination, team building activities, periodic academic review and tutoring, and a summer bridge program.
Abraham Baldwin’s “Brother 2 Brother” chapter of the Student African-American Brotherhood (S.A.A.B.) has an emphasis on African-American male student success, retention, and graduation. SAAB provides participants the opportunity to create a positive peer community through engagement in personal growth activities and through participation in service learning projects in the community.
