"Implementing Effective Initiatives to Address Toxic Masculinity on College Campuses"; Dr. Keenan Colquitt

College, specifically undergraduate, men are often described as “drunken, promiscuous… lovers of pornography, sports, and video games who rape women, physically assault each other, [and] vandalize buildings on campus” (Harris & Harper, 2014, p. 10). These behaviors are perceived to be common, even normal, for undergraduate men; however, there are many men who forego engaging in these behaviors and actively work to undermine toxic gender norms on their campuses. This presentation highlights college men who actively work to disrupt toxic gender norms that perpetuate men’s violence. Those who attend will begin to understand what motivates these men to act and how to implement effective initiatives to address toxic masculinity on college campuses.
