The African American Male Initiative program hosted its first Man Cave Monday, a mini-workshop series, on Oct. 21 in the Academic Success Center.
Jerry Oliver, director for AAMI, gave program updates and announcements and Maria Darley from the Study Abroad Office presented what the study abroad program has to offer. Refreshments will be served at each event.
“Man Cave Mondays are a way for students to start the week with motivation and mentoring,” Oliver said. “Each session will feature a special guest from campus or the community to provide information and inspiration.”
The AAMI plans to have several more workshops throughout the fall. The workshops are intended to educate black male students on a variety of topics. Visit the university calendar to find more events from the AAMI.
