Despite prevailing evidence of black males under performing in comparison to their peers, there are programs that illuminate potential pathways PWIs have utilized to support success of Black males on college campuses. A multiple-case study approach was utilized to describe and examine three existing programs for Black males at PWIs that are designed to support their undergraduate academic and social experiences. This study describes how best practices and curricula of programs for black males at PWIs play an instrumental role in developing interpersonal relationships which may benefit the academic achievement and overall well-being of black males in addition to enhancing cross-campus relationships for the institution.
