The African American Male Educational Network and Development (A2MEND) organization is comprised of African American male administrators who utilize their scholarly and professional expertise to foster institutional change within the community college system. We aim to create an affirming academic and professional environment for African Americans with a particular focus on African American male students, faculty, staff, and administrators.
The goals of A2MEND are to:
1) Hold African American male administrators (ourselves) in the community college system to their moral responsibility to uplift their communities through their role in education, knowledge, and expertise in the profession,
2) To support African American men in their career development, advancement, and success as community college administrators and students; and
3) To act as a resource where African American male community college administrators can access the experience and expertise of others across the system.
