The Men of Color summit educates, empowers and motivates our students to strive for excellence in education. Students, faculty and staff engage in the needs and issues that specifically men of color face; and how those issues intersect with their academic and professional careers. During the summit, participants have the opportunity to learn from and engage with professional leaders, who have navigated through these very issues, while also highlighting their success. The summit is a unique networking opportunity for participants to learn from each other by participating in workshops, a networking fair and engaging with professional men of color, who are leaders in their respective fields, and learning from each other. 

  1. Participants will address systemic, social structures that inhibit men of color from achieving high success in their educational careers.

  2. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from and engage with professional leaders, who have navigated through these very issues, while also highlighting their success.

  3. Provide students with a greater sense of self and helping them to contextualize their identity socially, academically, historically and politically.

  4. Provide educators with the tools and resources necessary to nurture an inclusive environment for men of color.

Professional attire is encouraged. Please bring a resume. This event is open to students, faculty and staff of all genders. We can’t wait to see you there!
