Men of Resilience and Empowerment

This program is a partnership between the Falcon Success Center and M.A.D.E. at the University of Montevallo.

What is the M.O.R.E. Program? 

Dr. Gregory Samuels poses with a MADE student at the University of Montevallo.

The purpose of M.O.R.E. at the University of Montevallo is to assist male students of color, as well as those coming from underserved communities, in overcoming the unique barriers commonly faced throughout the college experience. M.O.R.E. provides peer mentorship facilitated by trained student peer educators seeking to guide students through their first-year experience. M.O.R.E. Mentees will participate in student-led and created workshops, trips, and events with the goal of fostering a culture of excellence and striving to combat the stigmas, labels, and marginalization often imposed upon disadvantaged students. M.O.R.E. empowers our students to confront these barriers through evidence-based techniques and skills that students can implement in and outside of the college environment.
