Data shows that more women volunteer, study abroad, complete internships, and take advantage of key student services. Compounded by the gender imbalance that exists on most campuses, gender disparity in engagement is especially troublesome. Given how critical involvement and engagement are for academic success and retention, it is essential that campuses find ways to involve men in more experiential learning and co-curricular activities.

Join us to hear the findings of a recent research study highlighting successful engagement practices for male students. The researcher will share general results from the fifteen schools that participated in the study and explain how they succeeded in engaging more men on their campuses. Several practitioners will share practical tips for implementing men's groups, which emerged as one of the most successful practices.

Administrators in student services, multicultural affairs, and those tasked with retention of men on campus will learn what practices work for engaging men and how to effectively establish men's groups on campus.
