The Brother II Brother (BIIB) program is a West Chester University initiative focused on positively leading, empowering, and influencing minority males on campus. BIIB utilizes Academic Ambassadors, upper-class minority male students committed to academic excellence, to provide individualized and unique academic support to other minority male students. Our Academic Ambassadors help BIIB achieve its overall goal of increased WCU minority male retention, campus involvement and academic success.
The Brother II Brother program relies on the help of minority male student leaders who have the motivation, experience and attitude required to be successful students on campus. They are the driving force of this initiative, and alongside of the program coordinator help to shape the program’s structure and strategy for accomplishing our goals.
Academic Ambassadors in the BIIB program’s key focus is to help students develop their own self-determined method for continued academic good standing and campus engagement by promoting skills necessary for academic success; time management, test preparation, note-taking, critical thinking.
As our BIIB Academic Ambassadors voluntarily participate their time and experience in order to help improve West Chester University’s campus climate and increase student potential for success, it is important we as a program recognize their efforts. As such, BIIB Academic Ambassadors will receive the following during the course our their participation;
