What does it mean to be a man? When and how did you learn to become a man? What do you enjoy about being a man? What do you wish was different?
Explore these questions and more through Rebuilding Manhood. In a safe space you will discuss gender roles, norms/variations, and build a healthy, multifaceted masculinity with other UMBC men. Through the primary facilitation of UMBC staff members, you will discuss topics related to being a man parallel to other important social identities and explore ways you can be an effective ally for yourself, women, and others.
Rebuilding Manhood is an 11-week commitment for interested undergraduate men. The group will meet once a week on Fridays from 2-3:15pm beginning Friday, September 12, 2014. Group members are expected to make all meetings and are asked to commit to some outside reading (20-30 minutes a week).
Applications can be found here. Fall 2014 Application Deadline: Wednesday, September 10, 2014. Students will be accepted on a rolling basis and are encouraged to apply early.
