About the Brotherhood Initiative
The mission of the Brotherhood Initiative at the University of Washington Seattle is to empower undergraduate males of color to thrive on campus and graduate prepared for a lifetime of leadership, service, and success.
The BI is a collaborative partnership among the College of Education, Undergraduate Academic Affairs, Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity, Division of Student Life, Graduate School, and Office of Enrollment Management. Guided by a steering committee of staff, faculty, students, and volunteers, the three primary goals of the Brotherhood Initiative are to:
- Promote student growth, academic outcomes, and success by creating a community of scholars
- Improve the UW’s collective capacity to engage and support men of color
- Conduct interdisciplinary research to inform research and policy nationwide
