Male Alliance for a Rigorous, Transformative and Interdisciplinary Approach to Learning (MARTIAL)

The UNT Male Alliance for a Rigorous, Transformative and Interdisciplinary Approach to Learning (MARTIAL) is a strategic retention initiative designed to improve persistence and graduation rates for African-American men. This small community of students lives together in Rawlins Hall and enrolls in a 3-hour first year seminar.

In this course, students focus on both strategies for academic success as well as the history and culture of African American males through the lens of music. Additionally, program staff engage students academically and socially through a variety of activities such as weekly group study sessions, individual mentoring, and musical performances.
