The Initiatives

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

  1. Boosting Bronco Brothers
  2. Bronco "MILE" (Male Initiative on Leadership & Excellence)
  3. 3MP Initiative.

Ultimately, FSU seeks to better increase the timely degree completion rates of men. FSU students are encouraged to visit with us in the Helen T. Chick Building, Room 201.
