The International Colloquium on Black Males in Education (ICBME) is a social innovation platform designed to embolden the educational experiences of Black males across the globe by utilizing high quality research and policy recommendations. Given the significance of the educational pipeline and trajectory of Black Males to various societal challenges, the Pre-Colloquium focuses on targeted local support strategies through the College Academy (e.g., high school students), the Graduate School Academy (e.g., undergraduate and graduate students), Community Conversations (e.g., local concerned citizens) and the Policy Round Table (e.g., local, national and international policy makers).
Colloquium programming enables participants to interact with peers from other institutions and develop a global network of contacts and collaborators. The Colloquium's Awards Banquet serves to acknowledge and highlight the achievements of individuals who have been integral to the advancement of positive educational outcomes for Black males. In order to offer these types of programs, as well as to provide the necessary support to manage other aspects of the Colloquium, financial support from generous individuals and organizations is essential.
By supporting the 5th Annual International Colloquium on Black Males in Education, you are directly contributing to positive educational outcomes and opportunities for Black males throughout the world. The theme for this year's Colloquium is "Educational Transitions and Life Trajectories: Bridging Pathways to Success for Black Males." In return for your contribution to the Colloquium, you or your organization will receive acknowledgement and other benefits based upon your level of support.
