The correlational study focused on the relationship between academic achievement and mattering theory of African American undergraduate men attending private historically black colleges or universities. The 45 question Mattering Scales Questionnaire for College Students (Kettle, 2001) instrument was administered to (N = 75) undergraduate African American men attending a private historically black college in the southeastern United States. The results indicated a positive relationship between interactions with the administration and academic achievement. The findings also suggested undergraduate African American men attending historically black college or universities expressed unfavorable or neutral perceptions of mattering toward historically black colleges or universities.
