Welcome to the Male Success Alliance!

The Male Success Alliance (MSA) is an academic-focused support program and campus resource established to improve access, retention, and graduation for undergraduate men of color at California State University, Dominguez Hills. MSA began as an idea from a group of seven outstanding students in 2009. Now MSA has grown to prepare undergraduate men of color for professional, career and graduate school opportunities.
