Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center

Michigan Men

Join our Michigan Men programming and explore the impacts of masculinity on individuals, relationships, and communities. Through our group dialogue workshops, led by our student Peer Facilitator organization, you'll gain valuable skills for promoting wellness, building healthy relationships, and creating inclusive and empathetic communities. Our program is open to University of Michigan students and is designed to help you develop individualized wellness plans, acquire toolkits for preventing interpersonal violence, and foster supportive relationships.

Our workshops are 90 minutes and are a great opportunity to learn and grow. Sign-ups for our workshops are included in the programs listed below. If you want additional information, please email michiganmen@umich.edu. We can't wait to work with you!

Eligibility: Michigan Men's programming focuses particularly on the societal expectations of masculine-identified people and the effects these have on masculine-identified individuals, relationships, and communities at large. All University of Michigan students are invited to partake in any programs offered, regardless of gender, sex, sexual orientation, physical ability, or any other identities.
