Rationale for the Plan

The rationale for the chosen outcomes to assess is that it aligns with the assigned goals given to the York College Male Initiative Program by the City University of New York's Black Male Initiative Program. The York College Male Initiative Program falls under the Office of Special Programs and is funded exclusively by the New York City Council. Goals, given by CUNY's Central Office, are given each year. The York College Male Initiative Program adapts its goals based on that dissemination.

Data Collection and Evaluation

Data collection for the York College Male Initiative Program is done at the conclusion of each semester. The coordinators of each program assist the director in gathering and compiling the data from each participant. The director is responsible for completing the collection and summarizing the results, which are made available at the end of each academic year.
