The AAMI program at the Gordon State College consists of a Living-Learning Community (LLC), Brother 2 Brother (B2B), and Gordon First Year Experience for Men of Color (GFYE).
1. The LLC provide opportunities for residential students to expand their experience beyond the classroom. The LLC also has orientation programs, faculty and peer mentoring, social and educational programming.
2. B2B organization was created specifically to assist its participants to excel academically, socially, culturally, and professionally. SAAB is not a fraternity; however, members form a brotherhood that cannot be broken because it is a network of caring students who embrace the key concepts of accountability and responsibility.
3. The GFYE course provides men of color, who have deficiencies in the areas of reading, mathematics, and/or English (writing), with special assistance during their first college semester.

AAMI is a thrust of the University System of Georgia (USG), the purpose of which is to increase the retention, progression, and graduation (RPG) rates of African American male students within the University System of Georgia institutions.
