    Students will be able to reflect on their own backgrounds, values, experiences, and perspectives regarding what it means to be a "man" in addition to hearing the stories and thoughts of fellow male students. Men in Progress is comprised of an over-night retreat and bi-weekly discussion sessions. The retreat lays the foundation for male students to feel comfortable sharing with one another their stories and experiences around topics of manhood and masculinity. And the discussion sessions focus on specific topics in more depth.
