Ubuntu Scholars

Your Success is My Success; I Am Because You Are.

What is Ubuntu Scholars?
Ubuntu Scholars is a mentoring program designed to EQUIP, ENGAGE, and EMPOWER underrepresented male students at Massasoit, primarily males of color, in an effort to ensure a healthy transition to college, facilitate academic and personal success and a culturally-inclusive learning community.

graphicOur Model
Grouped into academies, students engage in a year-long, interactive curriculum encouraging utilization of the various support services, and learning opportunities offered at Massasoit, coupled with the support of direct peers, and community volunteers as mentors.

Impact
Students actively engaged in educationally purposeful activities are more likely than their disengaged peers to persist through graduation (Harper, 2012).
