For more than a decade, there has been a dramatic decline in the percentage of African American males attending postsecondary institutions. In an effort to reverse this trend, some institutions (i.e., University of Georgia) have commissioned task forces and committees to investigate the causes of this decline as well as provide recommendations to address this problem.
