African American Male Initiative

The African American Male Initiative (AAMI) is designed to address the low retention and graduation rate among African American males at Louisiana Tech University.  This is not an organization but rather an initiative where there is no membership but rather a belonging.  

The Primary Goal of the AAMI

Provide African American males at Louisiana Tech University a holistic educational experience while increasing retention and graduation rates of participants in the AAMI to a pint where they exceed the rates of the general student population.  It is the goal of the AAMI to gain 100% participation from all African American males or underrepresented males who are not athletes from each freshman class cohort.
