Conducting Focus Groups

This focus group manual, a comprehensive “how-to” on conducting focus groups, was originally designed for the Center’s focus group work with six partner community colleges. Members of the National Advisory Committee and Center staff provided input and a careful review. The components of the manual have been adapted and can be customized for wider use by all community colleges interested in improving outcomes for men of color.
