Men Getting Involved
Here at UNCW we have an ever expanding variety of programs in which men can become involved to help raise awareness of sexual assault and violence issues on campus and in the community as a whole.
Please contact Adam Hall at 910-962-7004 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information on any of the events and programs listed below.
One-in-Four – All-Male Sexual Assault Education Group
A fledging organization here on campus, the men of One-in-Four are college students seeking to educate other college males on the prevalence of rape in our society and what they, as men, can do to help. It is a presentation-based program, and training involves education on sexual assault and rape issues, media influences, public speaking strategies, and audience engagement tactics.

The Men’s Leadership Summit
Join male staff, faculty, and fellow students for a day of discussion and debate on the often ignored issues and difficulties that men face as students in leadership roles. Though participants are from all ranks of campus life, this is a day where titles are dropped and we come together to learn from each other about what our masculinity means to each of us in our daily roles.For more information, click here.
CARE Peer Educator
The CARE peer educators are a group of UNCW students whose goal is to reduce the risk of sexual assault and sexual harassment on campus. This goal is realized through interactive presentations, awareness campaigns and programs that reach out to University students, high school students and the broader Wilmington community.
We welcome applications for membership as well as one-time volunteers.
You may contact us at 962.CARE for more information or go to the Application link here.
Rock Against Rape
Rock Against Rape is an annual benefit concert for the Rape Crisis Center of Coastal Horizons in Wilmington, NC. Four years ago, local bands from the area put together the event to support the Rape Crisis Center and it’s since taken on a life of its own. All of the proceeds will go directly to the Rape Crisis Center. Last spring’s event raised a lot of money and was a ton of fun, with bands participating at bars and venues all over the Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach area. Volunteers will probably be needed for the event and coming out to the shows is a great opportunity for your organization to show its support for the local center.
For more information, contact Coastal Horizon's Rape Crisis Center.
Walk-a-Mile in Her Shoes
Also organized by Coastal Horizons of Wilmington, Walk-a-Mile in Her Shoes is an event where men from all walks of life walk one mile in women’s high-heeled shoes through Downtown Wilmington to protest rape, sexual assault & gender violence. The proceeds from sponsored walkers go towards funding the Rape Crisis Center’s violence prevention education efforts in New Hanover and surrounding counties. A popular philanthropic event for fraternities, sports teams, and individual men who want to show solidarity with the rape prevention movement, this event takes place in the Fall semester every year.
