What We Do

The Percy E. Sutton Urban Male Leadership Academy (UMLA) Scholars Program aims to empower and support young men of color, with a focus on Black and Latino male students, through rigorous academic and personal support over the course of their college careers.

UMLA is funded through the CUNY Black Male Initiative (BMI), which has strived to increase enrollment rates of African American young men in CUNY schools since 2004.
