Professionals and students were engaged, motivated, strengthened and catalyzed to work towards lasting progress in  today’s educational system. It is our intention to highlight the ways the UCF community is supporting pathways of college access and student success, stated Tammie Nadeau, assistant director, Multicultural Academic Support Services. The conference was intentionally designed to focus on the lived experiences and perspectives of collegiate male students.

Data shows the National Male Student Success Conference participants persisted at 87.88 percent compared to 85.27 percent of non-MASS conference UCF undergraduate degree seeking students in fall 2015. Data is not yet available for the 2016 conference.
