Urban Male Scholars
The CUNY SPS Urban Male Scholars (UMS) program is designed to provide culturally competent peer mentoring training for our students who are men of color. The program Advisory Committee meets regularly to collaborate on program design and improvement efforts. This program is supported by a generous grant from the CUNY Black Male Initiative.
BMI is a university-wide student development initiative with more than 30 campus programs focused on increasing matriculation, retention and graduation rates of underrepresented students, particularly men of color. CUNY BMI is one expression of CUNY’s commitment to access and diversity. CUNY BMI campus programs are open to all academically eligible students, faculty and staff, without regard for race, gender or national origin.
