This study assesses the effectiveness of the goals and objectives of the Clark Atlanta University Brawley/Pfeiffer Male Initiative Program (BMI). The study examined the effectiveness of the components of the program which are: Male/Peer Mentorship, Academic Support Services, Student Development, and Career Enrichment Program.

The survey design method in the form of a questionnaire was distributed to the freshmen male students of Brawley and Pfeiffer Halls and employed to collect the data needed to determine the effectiveness of the Black Male Initiative program.

The conclusions drawn from this study showed that the primary components are very effective among the participants. Yet one of the most important aspects of the program, the Male/Peer Mentor Program, is not as effective because of lack of commitment/communication between the peer and male mentors and the participants of the program.
