Our Mission

The African American/Black Male Staff (AABMS) is committed to providing a support network and professional development opportunities for AA/Black male staff at the University of Cincinnati.


Through programs, meetings, literature readings, educational workshops and networking the AABMS aspires to become a standing body that implements strategies to create opportunities for the recruitment and retention of AABMS to serve the University and extended community.


The founding principles for the AABMS are to enhance the professional men of AABMS and to increase the consciousness and togetherness of AABMS across campus, while also upholding a high standard for integrity and a dedicated focus on the recruitment, retention, mentorship, and commitment to the University of Cincinnati AABM students.
