Overview: There is no more important position in the success of a 100 Black Men of America's Collegiate 100 program than the volunteer chapter or campus advisor who serves as a role model and mentor. There are many benefits to having an advisor. Advisors maintain continuity within the Collegiate chapter from year to year, providing a sense of history, acting as an advocate for our Collegiate members, and they can also provide helpful resources and knowledge. The goal of this session is to share the Collegiate Advisors’ responsibilities, share best practices and discuss the DO's & DON'T of a Collegiate 100 advisor.
