COURAGE STRENGTH FORTITUDE
To create an on-going learning community of male students organized around academic support, social interaction, civic engagement and personal development for the purpose of assisting students to persist to graduation.
Pi Eta Kappa, the academic fraternity and honor society for urban males, was established by Dr. Edison O. Jackson, President Emeritus of Medgar Evers College, in April, 2007. PEK's mission is to:
The Men of Determination (M.O.D) is a collective of male students who come together to encourage and support each other in their academic and individual pursuits. There is no GPA requirement to join this group.
Every spring semester MDEC sponsors a week-long celebration of male students at Medgar Evers College that includes workshops, symposia, lectures, social events and special events. It is an opportunity to provide a forum to highlight the achievements of certain members of the College, as well as the surrounding community. One of the central events of this celebration is the annual “Men of Medgar In Suits” in which male students dress professionally and stylishly and participate in a walk across campus.
The Math Masters Collaboration offers an opportunity for college students to demonstrate leadership and provide service to the community by tutoring/mentoring middle school students through math. The program is a partnership between MDEC, the MEC Math Department and middle schools MS 61 and PS 375. It includes an afterschool program, a Saturday Academy and a summer camp.
Through the Pi Eta Kappa Honor Society and the Men of Determination, we attempt to give male students an opportunity to learn and experience leadership. MDEC, in addition, sponsors both academic and leadership workshops for all students during the academic year.
Through group and individual structured mentoring, MDEC attempts to create a bond between male students, staff and faculty that will provide an experience that will elevate their study and leadership skills.
