The purpose of the establishment of the BMI was to bring together a group of dedicated individuals who have an invested interest in the holistic development and success of Black males at Florida State University. The BMI places a special emphasis on recruiting and retaining Black males as they persist to graduation and beyond.


The specific goals of the BMI are:

  • To provide students with a continuing orientation to the university and community life.
  • To help students connect with other students in the university.
  • To offer students a variety of support mechanisms.
  • To guide students on a pathway to achieving student success while in college.
