STRATEGIC FORMATION & DESIGN

The 1990s were a period of explosive growth for minority groups nationwide, and in California such increases put the total minority population squarely in the majority, according to recent figures released by the U.S. Census Bureau. Meanwhile, one of the realities confronting the United States is that a major proportion of racial and ethnic minority students in this country have unequal access to higher education, and enrollment statistics show a high drop-out rate among minority college students. Many minority students experience barriers often linked to college access and retention including, but not limited to, lack of financial aid, the need to work full-time, absence of mentors and role mentors, and a lack of social and academic support. If the demographic trends continue as predicted by the U.S. Census Bureau, minority enrollment and achievement in higher education are inexorably linked to this nation's continued economic productivity and growth. In meeting this demographic trend head on with appropriate resources, it will become not only important to increase minority recruitment and retention in higher education, but it will be of equal importance to facilitate the transition of these aspiring leaders into the ever competitive workforce. Sensing an urgent need to embrace this demographic trend head on with appropriate resources, Millennium Momentum Foundation, Inc. was formed in 2002 as a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation to offer a state-of-the art, wrap-around service delivery approach to educating, supporting, and advancing a diverse population.
