The purpose of this qualitative study, using a phenomenological design, was three-fold. First, it explored the lived experiences of Black male community college students enrolled at State University of New York (SUNY) community colleges in Central and Western New York, as they exposed insight into strategies employed as they persisted to graduation. Next, it explored preconceived notions held by faculty about the academic capabilities of these students. Finally, it explored ways to end preconceived notions held by faculty directed at these students. Data was collected using an anonymous questionnaire distributed to targeted faculty within identified geographic areas and one-on-one, semi-structured interviews with students. Findings uncovered positions held by each group on historical hindrances to Black male students achieving academic success.
