East Stroudsburg University is fully invested in ensuring that men of color are academically and socially successful during their time as a student.

The Multicultural Male Initiative (MMI) was established to support the transition and transformation of men entering and persisting at the institution. With the intent of fostering inclusion within the immediate campus and surrounding communities, MMI serves as a development system that prioritizes mentorship, academic excellence, self-awareness and student engagement in an effort to create and maintain a sense of belonging at East Stroudsburg University. Ultimately, MMI contributes to the institution's interest in achieving higher satisfaction, retention and graduation rates amongst men of color.

MMI is operated by a team of administrators and student leaders that are connected to the daily experience of multicultural men at ESU. With diverse interests, professional backgrounds and campus affiliations, MMI administrators provide direct support to all students that participate in the program throughout the year. MMI exists to educate men of color through scholastic cultural, and social programming while contributing to the recruitment, transition, and retention of underrepresented men in higher education.
