Men and Masculinities

As part of the University of Iowa Anti-Violence Plan, the university is committed to expand and coordinate its efforts in mobilizing and engaging male-identified students, staff, faculty, and community partners to work as allies with all genders to create a culture of respect free from gender-based violence. 

Lunch and Learn Series

The Men and Masculinities Task Force will host a monthly series of educational discussions that will examine men, masculinity, and how to engage men in creating a safer community for all. The locations will rotate and the topics will change from month to month and will feature various experts in different fields.

Authentic Masculinities Discussion Group

What does it mean to be a "college guy?" This discussion group, aimed at examining what it means to be a man in today's college culture and how we can reshape masculinity to be more authentic. We'll discuss the ways cultural norms and practices restrict the ways men behave, limit the kinds of relationships they can have, and impact their mental and physical health. 

Although this group will focus on male socialization, students of all gender are encouraged to attend. 

The three part series will start on September 26th at 5pm in the Catlett Seminar Room. Pizza will be provided!
