Boosting Bronco Brothers
Boosting Bronco Brothers (B3)
Fayetteville State University seeks to better improve the academic and personal success of young men through more targeted initiatives. One such initiative is “Boosting Bronco Brothers (B3) Transition to FSU Initiative." Creating conditions for their success early is imperative! The B3 initiative has four major goals that:
- Create opportunities for young men to develop a set of educational values (i.e., “Statement of Educational Values and First-Year Goals”) that will serve as a set of principles by which B3 students will abide during the first year;
- Engage men of color in specialized and compelling workshops that particularly are germane to men of color, address strategies for their success both in and outside the classroom, studio, and laboratory settings, strategies that are particularly needed during the first four semesters in school;
- Create solid, healthy, and early interpersonal relationships among men of color through common co-curricular experiences and “brother” bonding; and
- Enables “all” participants to "stick together" through smaller, manageable groups; namely, through the Bronco Men Learning Community/UNIV 101 and 102.
