About Us

In the winter of 2013, several minority men gathered on campus to share a vision to create an organization for (undergraduates, graduates, and faculty/staff) that would foster mentorship and success among minority men in the Rochester community.

The Minority Male Leadership Association (MMLA) is proud to be a new affinity group at the University of Rochester. Our mission, “We, the Minority Male Leadership Association, are dedicated to exploring the characteristics of successful minority male leaders. We will 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%. 

We seek to meet such a need by creating quality programming targeted for young driven minority men in the Rochester community.

“As iron sharpens iron so does one man sharpen another…”
“Team work makes the dream work”
