Man 2 Man

We already have mentors that will be assigned to our students, however, I want to engage our older male students in reciprocal mentoring relationships in a series of monthly workshops. Man2Man will not only help bridge the gap of college acceptance and retention of our students but will also create a genial space to help navigate questions, concerns, and apprehensions about the transition from boyhood to becoming a young man excelling in life and in higher education.


Program Mission Goals:

Strategy & Planning

The alignment of the institution with the umbrella goal of student success and Upward Bound’s process for translating the desired future into defined goals and objectives and executing the action to achieve them.


Assist & Develop

Assist underrepresented minority male students in becoming acclimated to a college campus and the communities they live in. Develop activities that bridge the gap between faculty, staff, and students which focus on the issues that directly relate to the adjustment, persistence, and academic achievement of underrepresented male students.


Leadership & Vision

Committing and collaborating with other IUPUI departments, committees, and professionals’ leadership with respect to student success and to the clarity of the vision for desired change through the program and for the maturation of our students holistically.



Provide resources and services that will address the students’ unique needs.
