The Male Empowerment Network (M.E.N.)




MEN's mission is to support the cultural, academic, professional, personal, and social development of men of color. All students are welcome to join.


MEN seeks to increase unity among men through support, empowerment and networking.


The Male Empowerment Network hosts weekly meetings during the academic year in the E. Timothy Moore Student Multicultural Center (Kent Student Center, Room #206). These meetings are held every Tuesday at 6:00pm and anyone who identifies as male is invited to attend.

This past spring, M.E.N. was featured on the Steve Harvey Show as a part of the university collaboration to provide scholarships and support to eight young men who have just started their first year as Golden Flashes!

The Steve and Marjorie Harvey Foundation has generously pledged $10,000. Funds are used to support programming and scholarships for male-identifying students of color to support their academic, professional, personal and social development.
