dc.description.abstract This study provides information about the primary role model of African American men in college and examines the influences between role models and their post-graduate plans. The study surveys 94 African American men currently enrolled at Ball State University. The questions ask about their education and their role models. Frequencies and cross-tabs were used to analyze and compare the data. Results suggest that there is a relationship been postgraduate plans and the frequency of interaction with role models. Results also suggest that African American college men typically have role models that are similar in gender, race and have some kind of family relation. The research examines successful college African American men with the intent to help offset some of the negative images of African American men.
