BMEN Success Coaching

Academic success coaching allows students to:

  • Create an individualized plan to achieve success
  • Identify potential obstacles and challenges, and connect students to resources. 
  • Gain specific skills that will assist in achieving goals
  • Reflect on progress
  • Topics can include:
    • Mentorship opportunities
    • Internships/Undergraduate Research
    • Academic coaching
    • Connection to campus resources
    • General Advice


The BMEN initiative is a significant university effort to increase Black Male student success and alumni engagement at Virginia Tech.

We encourage alumni to engage in this initiative by:

  • signing up as mentors, resources or speakers for future programs
  • providing students with access to opportunities
  • engage by supporting our BMEN Fund or mobilizing others to do the same (for programs, scholarships, community service trips)
  • consider developing activities that would help support the success of this initiative and our students.
