A new student retention program at Elizabeth City State University aims to help male students navigate not only student life, but life in general.
Champion Scholars is a pilot program currently focusing on 25 male freshmen and according to ECSU’s interim dean of students, Dr. Coray Davis, the idea is to simply enhance male student success.
“In general, male students may come in at an even playing field with female students, but somewhere along the way the ball drops,” said Dr. Davis.
When the proverbial ball drops, those male students may either fall behind, or perhaps worse, drop out of college. This program aims to give these young men what they need to succeed at ECSU.
