Welcome to the Male Success Alliance!

The Male Success Alliance (MSA) is an academic-focused support program and campus resource established to improve access, retention, and graduation for undergraduate men of color at California State University, Dominguez Hills. MSA began as an idea from a group of seven outstanding students in 2009. Now MSA has grown to prepare undergraduate men of color for professional, career and graduate school opportunities.

Mission and Goals


The mission of MSA is to improve access, retention, and graduation rates of boys and men of color by providing academic support, professional development, and mentoring. The program aims to support the college and career success of boys and men of color by utilizing a holistic approach to promote brotherhood and community through cultural awareness and identity development.


  • Effectively guide and support students through their postsecondary experience, in order to improve retention and graduation of men of color at CSUDH
  • Prepare students for professional, career, and graduate school opportunities
  • Collaborate with students, campus, and external partners to cultivate community and civic engagement
  • Encourage identity exploration and holistic development through cultural affirmation and "brave space" communities
Guiding Principles

The Male Success Alliance is centered around our core principles of beings conscious, competent and committed. Men of the Male Success Alliance are encouraged to explore and practice these values in the classroom and in their personal lives.
