Men of Southwest Tennessee

The Project M.O.S.T. program is grant-funded through the U.S. Department of Education's Predominantly Black Institutions (PBI) initiative and is designed to give preference and assistance to first-year African-American male students.

National studies reveal that statistically, college success rates among African-American male students are much lower than those of other ethnic groups and/or gender groups. Our country can't be satisfied with this statistic and think that it will continue to be competitive globally.

Every segment of the society must be prepared to make positive contributions toward establishing and maintaining a workforce that excels in terms of knowledge and quality output. To aid in this accomplishment, the M.O.S.T. program offers an excellent opportunity for our African-American male students to participate in a dynamic experience whereby they are supported through the following:

  • A thorough battery of academic, career-interest, and barrier identification assessments
  • Intensive case management services
  • Monthly stipends
  • Learning-support services
  • Mentoring
  • Learning cohort support services
  • Leadership training
