The Major Initiatives

The fundamental purpose of the University’s male initiatives is to create institutional opportunities for the academic and personal success of young men enrolled at Fayetteville State University. While the University has an array of existing academic and personal support services and programs for all students, FSU has identified three major initiatives to help better springboard young men to graduation. These specialized initiatives are:

  1. Boosting Bronco Brothers (B3): We Rise! 
  2. Bronco "MILE" (Male Initiative on Leadership & Excellence)
  3. 3MP Initiative

Ultimately, FSU seeks to increase the rates at which men persist to graduation. FSU students are encouraged to visit with us in the Helen T. Chick Building, Room 201, 202, 203, 204, and 207.  These spaces include a conference room and a study lounge.  Students may borrow a laptop to conduct academic tasks, but laptops must remain in designated spaces at all times.
