Higher education continues to be concerned about the college success of college men, especially those from oppressed and minoritized identities. College men’s behavior has an impact on college students of all genders through conduct violations, sexual violence, alcohol and other substance use, and more.

On this episode of Student Affairs Live, host Keith Edwards speaks with Dan Tillapaugh and Brian McGowan, co-editors of the new book Men and Masculinities. This episode will discuss how student affairs professionals can put theory into practice to foster men’s transformative learning and development across their identities without reifying their privilege and dominance.

This episode is being promoted in partnership with ACPA’s Coalition on Men and Masculinities.

This free episode will air live on Wednesday, July 31 at 1 pm ET. To watch the archived video, just return to this page at any point after the episode airs.
