Men's Leadership Summit
The Men's Leadership Summit is an annual conference held every November for UNCW male students, faculty and staff. The event is designed to give male student leaders the chance to discuss and explore the meanings of masculinity in our society. Rather than taking societal masculinity for granted, the Summit aims to shed a new light on American manhood in order to help our attendees begin to define their masculinity on their own terms, rather than allowing the fact they are a man dictate their attitudes and behaviors.
Each year, the Summit features a prominent male key-note speaker as well as a variety of workshops on topics that affect UNCW men. Past topics of discussion have included male body image, sexuality, homophobia, men and violence, sex and alcohol, gender stereotypes, and many more. Some of the main goals of the summit are:
- to empower men to look at masculinity in our society more objectively
- to give young men at UNCW a forum for voicing their thoughts on the issues that affect them
- to allow men to learn from each other effective leadership styles and roles
- to determine a priority list of men’s health needs and concerns on campus
