Register for the Symposium

Malik Evans

The 2nd Annual Minority Male Success Symposium sponsored by the Minority Male Leadership Association (MMLA) will be held at the University of Rochester on April 19, 2014 at the Simon Business School. The Minority Male Leadership Association is an affinity group at the University of Rochester that is dedicated to exploring the characteristics of successful minority male leaders. In doing so, we aim to build a community of young driven minority men focused on success by providing mentorship and promoting excellence. One of our primary goals is to connect with the Rochester community as a whole to help improve the plight of young minority men, who are graduating from the Rochester City School District at only 9%.

Our annual symposiums serve to educate, motivate, and promote mentorship with the students to improve the plight of minority men in the Rochester City School District through a series workshops, discussions, and networking. Students who attend will be able to participate in workshops that highlight the benefits and importance of higher education, as well as how professional development plays a role in getting college.
