Project X: Demystifying the Unknowns of College Life

 

BE A PART OF THE ELITE CLASS OF X-MEN!

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The Office of Diversity and Community and the Black Male Achievement Challenge (B-MAC) are excited to launch “Project X: Demystifying the Unknowns of College Life” in the Fall 2022 semester.
Project X is an Early Arrival Program that will give young minority men a head start to their UCA academic journey by exposing them to resources and the best practices to achieve optimal success. The program will foster brotherhood among participants and connect new students to faculty, staff, and current students who can assist in their transition to UCA and their continued development at the university. Project X is designed to include brotherhood bonding, team-building, academic success workshops, faculty and staff presentations, peer mentoring, and leadership development all within a fun and safe environment.

FREE OF CHARGE

X-Men will get the opportunity to move into their residence hall early and participate in the early arrival program free of charge. The expenses for lodging, food, and activities are covered through The Office of Diversity and Community.
