Men of Color at Penn

Men of Color at Penn was initially organized in March 2006. The purpose of the monthly meetings is to provide men support in relationship to our surviving and thriving at the University of Pennsylvania as staff, faculty, and students. Men of Color at Penn also discuss methods/strategies of dealing with racism, social-emotional indignities and best practices of addressing abuses of power within the university and community at large. Monthly meetings are convened and opened to Penn representatives and the community. Topics are presented within a relaxed atmosphere. Meetings represent a balance between discussion topics and open forum.
