The Brotherhood Initiative (BI) was featured in an article in The Chronicle of Higher Education titled “The Problem Nobody’s Talking About” which discusses how men have trailed women in degree completion for decades and how programs like the BI have helped remedy this issue. Students who are in the BI Oscar Joya and Thomas Efrem are featured in the article, as well as associate professor and founding director of the BI Joe Lott and student success coordinator Paul Metellus. The article highlights how cohort programs like the BI are successful, yet uncommon, on most college campuses and how when the BI started, there was a ten-percentage-point graduation gap between underrepresented minority males at the UW and their white peers and six years later that gap has nearly closed for BI participants.
