Black & Hispanic Male Initiative
The mission of the Black & Hispanic Male Initiative (BHMI) program at the Westchester Community College (WCC) is to support male students of color in achieving a better educational outcome at the college and beyond. We work to increase the graduation and retention rates among participating students. We provide our students with information on academic scholarships, assistance in transferring to a four-year college, and support services such as mentoring, tutoring, and counseling. Through our “contact model” approach we keep an uninterrupted communication with students of color during and after each semester.
