Men of Color Achieving Success

The Men of Color Achieving Success (MOCAS) Initiative first began at VSCC in Fall 2018. This group aims to increase the graduation rate of persons identifying as men of color learning in a predominately white institution. A series of six sessions utilizing personal and professional development will be conducted this semester via Zoom to discuss barriers to achievement, cultural competence, appropriate social and professional conversations, as well as identifying successful strategies and resources to improve academic performance. The Fall 2020 dates are October 9, 16, 23, 30, November 6, and 13. If you know of any students who may benefit from this program, please have them contact Professor Taylor Moore (taylor.moore@volstate.edu or 615.461.0674).
