Brothers on the Rise is a volunteer-based association of African American and Latino faculty, graduate students and staff at The University of Toledo (UT)  that was established in 2011 to help UT address the low retention and graduation rate of  African American and Latino male students.

Through a mission of improving the human condition of UT students thought programs and activities that foster and encourage students’ pursuit of academic and cultural excellence, Brothers on the Rise works collaboratively with the University and the community to address the needs of these young men.
