Man Up! with Dr. Michael Kimmel

Tuesday, February 16, 2016
7:00pm – 8:30pm

Storrs Campus
Laurel Hall 102

Join us for an evening with Dr. Michael Kimmel, one of the world’s leading experts on men and masculinities. “Man Up!” is an event that will provide students, of all gender identities, an opportunity to explore masculinity through Dr. Kimmel’s talk. The event aims to provide people with the information they need to understand societal expectations of men, why they can be harmful, and what we can do to help change them, thereby helping everyone. Masculine ideals harm both men and women in society, and their perpetuation can cause a lot of trauma in those that do not fit the ideal “masculine” traits. Sponsored by the USG Student Development Committee with the Women's Center and the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life.
