During this first year, JCC will focus on assessing and improving the academic achievement of all first-year incoming minority male students.

Johnston Community College has received a 2016-17 Minority Male Success Initiative Grant for $17,234 from the State Board of Community Colleges.

The grant will move serving minority male students from the previous cohort-based model to an institutional action plan.

During this first year, JCC will focus on assessing and improving the academic achievement of all first-year incoming minority male students.

JCC will also concentrate on the assessment and identification of policies and procedures that may impede and those that may boost student completion.

The Minority Male Success Initiative is a redesign of the NC Minority Male Mentoring Program (3MP) that was established in 2003 to improve retention and graduation rates of minority male students in the state's community colleges.

Contingent upon state funding approval by the General Assembly and the State Board of Community Colleges, JCC will receive a total of $51,702 for three academic years. In all, 47 community colleges of the 58 in North Carolina received minority male success initiative funding.
