Research & Publications
The mission of the BI is to empower men of color undergraduates to thrive and graduate prepared for a lifetime of leadership, service, and success. To accomplish this, the BI conducts interdisciplinary research about factors that promote the success of young men of color, in order to improve practice and contribute to the literature and research available on the experiences of underrepresented men of color within higher education.
