CUNY Black Male Initiative at CSI (BMI)

Building 2A, Room 204-B
Coordinator: John Meche

The College Success Initiative is the Black Male Initiative Program (BMI) at the College of Staten Island. This program was designed by The City University of New York (CUNY) to engage successful minority students in the recruitment and retention of other minority students, especially males, at the college and high school levels.

The College Success Initiative is open to all academically eligible students, faculty, and staff without regard to race, gender, national origin, or other characteristic. The program is a collaborative effort of parents, college faculty and staff, and high school principals and teachers, as well as members of the Staten Island community, to attain the same goals with our minority students.
