Men in Progress is an opportunity for students to learn, communicate, and reflect about their definition of what it means to be a “man” and how that impacts one’s relationships and behaviors.
Through a variety of presentation and discussion formats, students will be able to reflect on their own backgrounds, values, experiences, and perspectives regarding what it means to be a "man" in addition to hearing the stories and thoughts of fellow students. Men in Progress is a partnership between the Center for Student Involvement and Office of Student Life.
