Blazer Male Excellence Network - BMEN

2015 bmen group

The BMEN Peer Mentoring Program is designed to provide academic and social support to Black male students entering UAB. BMEN’s overall goal is to improve the quality of life for the new student by partnering a returning student with a new student, and by staff providing information on navigating the collegiate experience inside and outside the classroom. The mentors are selected each spring and go through extensive training to offer the best services possible.

Green Blazers for outstanding UAB Blazers: BMEN bestows new honor

Three worthy students have earned a new honor, awarded for the first time at the University of Alabama at Birmingham — the Green Blazer. Brandon Cohill, Garrett Stephens and Samuel Sullivan IV were awarded the inaugural green blazers for 2016 at the Blazer Male Excellence Network’s Undugu Male Gathering, held Feb. 18 in the new Hill Student Center. Undugu, a Swahili word, translates to “brotherhood.”
