The Minority Male Initiative (MMI) at Eastern Florida State College is all about helping you achieve your dreams. We know that juggling college and life can be challenging, so the extra support built in to MMI can make a difference in your success.

The MMI's mission is to improve the retention and completion rates for men of color at EFSC, plus make the journey more rewarding — and even fun! Membership in this collegewide organization provides numerous benefits including:

  • Personalized Mentoring/Advising: Faculty members dedicated to your success have volunteered as mentors to guide you through the challenges of higher education, help you establish goals, and track your progress.
  • MMI Student Club/Peer Support: Build a mutual support system with peers on your campus. Clubs meet on a regular schedule on the Melbourne and Palm Bay Campuses, with a combined club for the Cocoa and Titusville Campuses.
  • Tutoring Connections: Take advantage of customized tutoring in EFSC's Academic Success Centers including both peer and professional tutors.
  • Dedicated Digital Space: My MMI, conveniently located inside EFSC's Canvas online classroom system, provides information about college resources on each campus including financial aid, academic support, life skills training, internships, and more. Plus, MMI members can digitally chat with fellow cohort members and faculty mentors.
  • Networking/On- and Off-Campus Events: This is where the rubber meets the road, sometime literally, through events at EFSC, plus off-campus trips to other colleges or out-of-town conferences for men of color. 
  • Scholarships and Financial Assistance Opportunities:  We'll provide information from private, state, federal, and EFSC Foundation sources designed to help you pay for college.
  • Research Guidance: Access scholarly articles that impact your education, plus resources to conduct hands-on research projects that can enhance your student resume.

The first step to joining the MMI is to fill out the questionnaire on this page or get in touch with a representative listed in the contacts tab. You'll soon be connected with personalized resources dedicated to helping you find that clear, achievable pathway to success!

All students at EFSC are welcome to participate in the Minority Male Initiative.
