Dr. Miles Groth at U of T: "Why We Need Campus Men's Centres"

Caring About University Men
Why We Need Campus Men’s Centres in a Time of Crisis

Friday, September 27, 2013, 7:00PM

Sandford Fleming Building, Room 1101
10 King’s College Road
Located at the University of Toronto

milesThis year about 35% of university students in developed countries will be male. If the statistically projected steep rate of decline continues, the last bachelor’s degree earned by a male will be awarded around 2025. Although that is not likely to happen, the situation for males on campuses everywhere is precarious, yet only a few faculty and administrators are responding to the reality. What is that reality? What is it like to be a young man 18-21 living and studying at university? How did matters come to be as they are? What is being done to care for young men in the current situation?

Dr. Miles Groth, editor of New Male Studies: An International Journal and founder of College and University Centers for Men will discuss why attention is being turned to young men at university and why they need our concern and care. Dr. Groth, an adviser for CAFE, is the author of Engaging College Men: Discovering What Works and numerous articles on the well-being of boys and men. He has addressed this topic in Australia, Canada and the States.

      It usually runs about 1.5 hrs including a Q&A at the end. There is no charge, but we do ask for donations.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
