Black Male Initiative

We want our students to achieve success in all aspects of life and create meaningful relationships with others. This program exclusively serves the needs of black men. 

Brother to Brother (B2B)

The Brother 2 Brother Black Male Initiative (B2B) is designed to increase the value of community and foster brotherhood for Black men at the University of South Carolina. B2B aims to improve active participation, provide educationally enriched experience and increase retention of Black men.
