The Men's Project

The Men's Project seeks to bring together resources to help male identified students at Dartmouth analyze traditional notions of the masculine gender role, examine their own understanding of masculinity, as well as explore the various intersecting identities within the male community.

The CGSE Men's Project will engage Dartmouth men in programs, educational opportunities, mentoring, and community building opportunities focusing on examinations and explorations of masculinities. Dartmouth students, staff, faculty, and community members are invited to participate in all Men's Project programming.

The White Ribbon Campaign is the CGSE Men's Project's flagship initiative, calling men to pledge in the fight to end sexual violence. In addition to handing out white ribbons to the community, The White Ribbon Campaign provides opportunities for the Dartmouth community to explore and analyze the role that men can play in stopping rape. From lectures and panels to discussions and passive exhibits, The White Ribbon Campaign seeks to engage men at Dartmouth as agents for positive change.
In addition, The CGSE Men's Project explores men and masculinities at Dartmouth through programs like Upstaging Stereotypes, The Elephant in the Room, and Men's Forum. For more information about getting involved with Men's Forum, blitz Mens Forum.
