Men Getting Involved
Here at UNCW we have an ever expanding variety of programs in which men can become involved to help raise awareness of sexual assault and violence issues on campus and in the community as a whole.
Please contact Adam Hall at 910-962-7004 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information on any of the events and programs listed below.
The Men’s Leadership Summit
Join male staff, faculty, and fellow students for a day of discussion and debate on the often ignored issues and difficulties that men face as students in leadership roles. Though participants are from all ranks of campus life, this is a day where titles are dropped and we come together to learn from each other about what our masculinity means to each of us in our daily roles.For more information, click here.
CARE Peer Educator
The CARE peer educators are a group of UNCW students whose goal is to reduce the risk of sexual assault and sexual harassment on campus. This goal is realized through interactive presentations, awareness campaigns and programs that reach out to University students, high school students and the broader Wilmington community.
We welcome applications for membership as well as one-time volunteers.
You may contact us at 962.CARE for more information or go to the Application link here.
My Stand Mentor
The My Stand Mentor program is a great opportunity to receive training and connect with the CARE office as a liaison between your organization and the CARE office in order to build healthy relationships and interpersonal violence prevention skills. The My Stand Mentor program will train you in handling crises, intervening in potentially difficult situations, and assisting in bringing one or more of CARE’s presentations to your organization. By attending My Stand training, we in the CARE office feel that you can deepen your ability to be a more active and engaged resource for your friends and the community. This training is designed to give all students the tools to be the change agents in our culture to reduce violence and improve each other's lives.
You may contact us at 962.CARE for more information or go to the My Stand Webpage.
Walk-a-Mile in Her Shoes
Also organized by Coastal Horizons of Wilmington, Walk-a-Mile in Her Shoes is an event where men from all walks of life walk one mile in women’s high-heeled shoes through Downtown Wilmington to protest rape, sexual assault & gender violence. The proceeds from sponsored walkers go towards funding the Rape Crisis Center’s violence prevention education efforts in New Hanover and surrounding counties. A popular philanthropic event for fraternities, sports teams, and individual men who want to show solidarity with the rape prevention movement, this event takes place in the Fall semester every year.
