Program Goals and Design

The BI is a collaborative partnership among the College of Education, Undergraduate Academic Affairs, Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity, and the Division of Student Life.  Guided by a steering committee of staff, faculty, and students, the BI focuses on two primary goals:

  1. Promote student growth and success by developing a cohort-based support system that will holistically promote the academic, personal, and leadership development of underrepresented male students of color at UW
  2. Inform research and policy by conducting interdisciplinary research on factors that promote the success of young men of color within the educational system
