When I first transferred here I didn’t know a lot of people. Now that I got integrated into M.E.N., I met a lot more students of color on campus. Through the workshops…time management was very helpful. Internet etiquette…how you know that stuff that you post on Facebook and blogs can damage your future. As a transfer student it was difficult to make friends as most students in my class had friends they met the previous year. Through participating in M.E.N. I was able to meet and form a connection with students from different disciplines around campus. M.E.N. through its workshops with Men's Warehouse, Orenda Springs High Ropes and other organizations, have given me the confidence to join other student organizations and leadership skills to engage with the Syracuse Community.

The Multicultural Empowerment Network (M.E.N.) aims to develop personal excellence while exploring cultural masculinities and responsibilities; explore the similarities and differences among communities of color in the struggle for equality; interrogate the impact of racism and the existence of patriarchy, sexism and heterosexism within communities of color, and explore methods that diminish and eradicate these forms of oppression; empower African American, Latino, Asian Pacific American, and Native collegiate men to be leaders in partnership with women for their communities.
M.E.N. became a recognzed sudent organization at Syracuse University in the spring 2015 semester. Click here to find out more information about the organization.

M.E.N. has helped me to develop my professional etiquette. I would say that M.E.N. has affected my academic life. It has helped me organize my academic life more than I have in previous years. Not having M.E.N. as a resource, I didn’t create a time management schedule. It contributed to helping me organize myself more.
