Project M.A.R.C.H. on the steps of the Dudley building

Mentoring Programs

Program Name: Project M.A.R.C.H (Male Aggies Resolved to Change History)

Program Coordinators: W. Grant Hill and Maurice "Kase" Greogory

M.A.R.C.H. is a mentoring, advising and cultural development program designed to enhance the academic progress of first-year male students, thus increasing retention, persistence, and graduation at the university. The program is designed to help students overcome the obstacles that could keep them from progressing to their sophomore year and obtaining a four-year degree.

Our goal is to provide workable student tools and guidance in the form of tutorial assistance, mentorship, student development workshops, and intensive intrusive advisement to assist these young men in excelling as students and citizens of the global community.
