The Center for the Study of Race and Equity in Education at the University of Pennsylvania releases a report from the National Black Male College Achievement Study, the largest-ever research project on Black undergraduate men. Offered in the report are key insights on success from achievers at 42 colleges and universities in 20 states across the nation. Also included are details about the research design and methods; information on the full sample and participating institutions; profiles of a few study participants; a summary of key findings from the study; and implications for educators, administrators, families, and policymakers.
