Urban Male Initiative

UMI Facebook Page

The Urban Male Initiative (UMI) is designed to facilitate the retention, scholarship, graduation and leadership of historically underrepresented Black and Latino males.  We are a collective of committed faculty and staff that represent the diversity of New York City. Some of us are from down south and others from the south Bronx. We come from Africa, the Caribbean and the U.S. mainland. We're white, black, Latino, and everything in between, and we have all come together for one reason:  to ensure your successful graduation from Pace.

WHAT WE DO

As young men of color and emerging scholars, we know your potential as future leaders in your respective communities as well as the global arena. The Urban Male Initiative seeks to cultivate your growth at Pace by providing a host of programs and services that include:

  • One on One mentoring 
  • Access to research, internship, conference, and travel opportunities
  • Discussion/rap sessions
  • Guest speakers 
  • Community service volunteerism 
  • Assistance with Graduate School Application Process 
  • Extracurricular Activities (Film screenings and more)
