Adult Men of Color Initiative



The mission of the Adult Men of Color Initiative (AMOC) is to recruit, enroll, retain, and empower adult men of color in DePaul University’s School of Continuing and Professional Studies (SCPS). The Initiative proudly advances higher education, lifelong learning, and degree attainment by developing leaders, strengthening family values, and building communities. Aligning Vincentian ideals of human dignity and social justice along with SCPS' essential commitments of valuing diversity, adult learning, and community in service to learning, the Initiative creates a culture of engagement. This culture transforms networks of mentoring, advising, and other shared relationships in addressing the critical concerns of adult men of color among fellow students, faculty, alumni, family, and friends. The initiative is open to men of color and SCPS students who are committed to increasing the prevalence of or improving the role of, men of color in higher education. For more information email
