This program is named after Lt. Col. John W. Mosley, who is Colorado State's first Black football student-athlete in the record-keeping era. He earned his degree from Colorado State in 1943, and is a proud member of the original Tuskegee Airmen, flying combat missions over Europe in World War II. This program is designed to assist identified African American student-athletes by serving as a resource while strengthening time management skills, encouraging academic success, enhancing leadership opportunities, and creating a sense of belonging and connection to the campus and its surrounding community. Ultimately, the overall objective of the program is to reduce the percentage of academic probation rates, to increase retention rates to matriculation, expose them to positive African American role models who have been through the rigors of academic achievement as a student-athlete and who have earned their degree. We teach leadership skills and start them on a positive path toward life after college.
