What Does it Mean to be a Man? From Kendrick to Mr. Incredible 

Time: Tuesday October 2nd, 2018

3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Location: Pine 111

Description: This event will allow students to start to engage in a conversation about the obstacles they face on their path to success. Through a series of reflective activities participants will explore and critically evaluate society's views on cisgender manhood and heteronormativity as they redefine it in accordance to their own personal experiences. The ultimate goal is for participants to walk out with an understanding of their own masculinities as a key component of their overall identities. This learning experience will in turn emphasize and raise awareness on the importance of physical and mental health in order to succeed at every level. This event will further the conversation in the Spring Semester.
