Located in the Cordell Reed Student Union, room 150, the African American Male Resource
Center (AAMRC) helps young African American males become eligible for postsecondary
options by making available those services that will offer academic and social support
once enrolled. The primary purpose of the Center is to collaborate with undergraduate
students in becoming efficient, independent learners. Program components are designed
to improve the persistence rate of African American males at the University by providing
an environment that emphasizes positive male development through shared experiences.
A major thrust of the African American Male Resource Center is to ensure that young
males understand and learn to value the long-term impact of staying in school as well
as developing a positive understanding of social roles and expectations.

In 2008, Chicago State University received a 2-year grant under the U.S. Department
of Education: Predominantly Black Institutions Program (PBI) to enhance the educational
outcomes of African American males. This initiative included development of the African
American Male Achievement Center. For more information about the PBI Project, click here.
