BMEC is designed to engage and empower you to be a lifelong learner and an active participant in your education. A part of the LaGuardia Multicultural Exchange program and The City University of New York Black Male Initiative (CUNY BMI), BMEC is a community of students connected to each other and the College through academic support services and mentorship.

BMEC programs and activities are open to all academically eligible students, faculty and staff, without regard to race, gender, national origin or other characteristics.


BMEC Mentors

Your mentor will help you see things in new and different ways. Mentors can be peers, faculty or staff who empower you to go beyond your comfort zone and inspire you to achieve success in your academic and personal life. BMEC will help you build the bridge to your success and beyond!

Real Talk Sessions

Come in and join the conversation! At Real Talk sessions you will have the chance to take part in honest conversations with your peers about real life issues, ranging from relationships and family to employment, housing and finances. These sessions offer strategies for addressing life issues you may encounter during your time in college.
