The MAC Brothers Initiative allows younger MAC brothers to grow while learning from the brothers who paved the way before them. This initiative focuses on skills development to allow our members to adjust to college life and prepare them to be global leaders upon graduation. For additional information about MAC Brothers, please email or call 919-530-6064.

Upon acceptance into NC Central, African American males are invited to join AAMI, live in the Living Learning Community and participate in program activities. After an application process in late spring/summer, AAMI students are accepted into a cohort of 40 men. Members participate in academic, leadership, identity, financial, and spiritual development, as well as opportunities to experience a sense of manhood/masculinity and brotherhood.

Alumni Sponsors

Our Alumni sponsors help our program participants secure job opportunities, internships and mentor support, as well as donating to provide substantial support throughout the school year. As a committed alum, you may already be giving to NC Central University in other ways. However, a gift to the Men's Achievement Center's and AAMI is the only way to support the programming directly. Your contribution helps with engaging community programs, signature celebrations such as reunions and Homecoming, scholarships, career support and mentors, and educational and networking events.
