The Male Empowerment Network (MEN) provides a multi-faceted approach to support the academic success of minority male students. MEN goals are to increase the retention, graduation,and transfer rates; connect minority male students with academic and professional support resources and services; and to create a culture of leadership, success, and empowerment.
MEN Chapters have been established at each of the 10 Maricopa Community Colleges. The Chapters are led by student officers and supported by a MEN adviser. The MEN Advisor Council meets monthly to share best practices, develop programming, and guide the program. MEN Chapters meet regularly to host/participate in activities aligned with the programmatic themes of Empowerment, Engagement, Academic Success, Leadership, and Brotherhood.
