Notes

Abstract: The University of North Texas student body includes more African American male students than the total enrollment of most historically black colleges and universities. At the same time, institutional research shows that African American male students have the highest risk of attrition at UNT. This demonstration project examined how librarians can work with faculty and students to develop and support culturally relevant projects and assignments. MARTIAL Eagles—a living/learning community comprised of freshmen males—met weekly in Fall 2017 for a one-hour course focused on the African American male experience in the United States examined through the lens of music. The cohort was also required be to take Sociology 2070: Race and Ethnicity. Library faculty from Public Services and the Music Library worked with the MARTIAL Eagles cohort and faculty, introducing the students to library resources that supported their studies.
