M2C3- Minority Male Community College Collaborative

We are pleased to announce Grossmont College’s membership in the Minority Male Community College Collaborative (M2C3) National Consortium on College Men of Color.

M2C3 is a project of San Diego State University’s Interwork Institute that was established with a grant from the San Diego State University Presidential Leadership Fund. The goal of the project is to partner with community colleges across the United States to enhance access, achievement, and success among minority male community college students. M2C3’s research and practice agenda prioritizes men who have been traditionally underrepresented and underserved in postsecondary education.

As a M2C3 member, Grossmont College will utilize:

  • Access to M2C3 webinars on men of color
  • Access to the M2C3 virtual discussion board
  • Participation in information-sharing on promising practices with other community colleges
  • Participation in an annual working group meeting hosted in San Diego
