Goals & Objectives
The goals of The Collegiate Black Male Network are:
To support students matriculating towards degree completion.
To connect students with resources to aid their personal and professional growth.
To increase awareness of issues affecting Black men in society.
To develop students to be leaders amongst their peers.
To serve through various community service projects and initiatives to help elevate our communities.

The framework is informed around qualitative and quantitative research. The CBM Network understands the role every entity plays and empowers individuals to be active participants to achieve the overall mission of the organization.
