The purpose of The Vanguard Society is to provide an opportunity for male students to have an honest and open dialogue about issues that impact their academic and personal development. In addition, the club will serve as liaison to assist the college with the recruitment and retention of our male students, as well as to increase their participation in campus activities. The club will have speakers, book discussion, and rap sessions for open dialogue and interaction. An array of issues that are not usually explored will be discussed ranging from race, class, relationships and dating, to fear, family, depression, anger, and culture.
