Lansing Community College

The Cesar Chavez Learning Center’s MAP program is focused on helping male students complete their educational goals, network and give back to the community. While all male students are welcome to join MAP, some programming is designed to support the cultural and social development of men of color, specifically Black men.

MAP is dedicated to preparing men for success in every aspect of their collegiate journey. Participants can expect to benefit personally and academically due to:

  • Being in an environment where students are empowered, supported and celebrated;
  • Being exposed to community leaders and job shadow opportunities;
  • Receiving information to assist in problem resolution and critical-thinking skills;
  • Accessing LCC and community resources;
  • Participating in academic enrichment activities;
  • Joining in leadership opportunities; and
  • Enjoying direct mentorship support.

Men About Progress at Lansing Community College mission is to help minority males complete their educational goals, network and give back to the community.
