The UNC Men’s Project is an initiative started in 2013 that seeks to create opportunities for male-identified students to learn, listen, reflect, and work together to increase men’s involvement in gender equity and violence prevention efforts. This program works to promote healthier masculinities on campus and to shift the culture of masculinity toward more non-violent norms. The UNC Men's Project is a designated High Impact Practice in Student Affairs, and is co-sponsored and supported by Student Wellness and the Carolina Women's Center.
The 2016-2017 Cohort will be hold weekly cohort sessions in Fall on Wednesdays from 6-8 pm, from September 21 through November 30 (no meetings during week of Fall Break or Thanksgiving). The application for this year has closed.
These are the questions the UNC Men's Project seeks to answer.
The UNC Men's Project starts with a 10-week program in the fall semester that (1) explores a spectrum of masculinities, (2) examines how our own stories are shaped by masculinity, and (3) gives participants the tools and knowledge to become peer allies, leaders, and educators in violence prevention and gender equity efforts at UNC.
The UNC Men's Project works year-round with a variety of campus and community partners to support ongoing efforts focused on violence prevention and gender equity at UNC Chapel Hill. The groups hosts meetings, workshops, events, and discussion groups to provide a space for students, both from our training program and the general student body, to continue their process of learning, listening, reflecting, and working together to make UNC a safer and more equitable community.
This project is co-coordinated by UNC Student Wellness and the Carolina Women's Center. Thanks to Sacrificial Poets and the Orange County Rape Crisis Center for their collaboration on the curriculum and events. In addition, the UNC Men's Project was made possible by the generous support of the Verizon Foundation.
