Aggie MEN

Mentoring Programs

The Center for Academic Excellence (CAE) is the hub for student success and academic support here at North Carolina A&T State University.  Our aim is to equip students with the fundamental skills to chart efficient learning paths, achieve their academic goals, and become productive and global contributors to society. 

We are committed to making strong and positive impacts on first-year and continuing male students as they matriculate toward graduation.  Our vision is to increase the educational attainment of all undergraduate male students.  We think that you would make an excellent member of Aggie MEN (Male Empowerment Network)

This program is designed to help you overcome the obstacles that could keep you from progressing to your sophomore year and obtaining a four-year degree.     

Here are some of the outstanding benefits for participating in this program:

 

  1. New freshmen members will register for the same section of the FRST 101 College Success course.
  2. Establish positive relationships with faculty and peer mentors through effective verbal, non-verbal and written communication.
  3. Provide awareness of campus educational resources and promote individual utilization of all services (i.e. tutorial, supplemental instruction, faculty interaction, etc.)
  4. Students will participate in various campus and community events to enrich their college experience.
  5. Build a village network that will carry you through your four years, and beyond.

 

Aggie MEN residential community is housed in Cooper and Curtis Residence Halls:

  • Cooper Hall holds approximately 400 freshmen male students and is located by the New Student Union.
  • Curtis Hall holds approximately 140 freshmen male students and is located by Williams Dining Hall.

If you have been assigned to Cooper or Curtis Hall, you will automatically be a member of Aggie MEN; those interested and not assigned to these residence halls should contact me at 336-285-4238 (or wghill@ncat.edu).
