About Our Events

Male Mentoring Recognition Ceremony

This is an annual event that is held by our MMI program in conjunction with the Department of Multicultural Programs & Services serving as a opportunity to recognize our mentees and mentors who have dedicated their time to the development of male students. MMI focuses on honoring them for their academic excellence, student involvement, community service and engagement.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) and MMI partners with the Women Resource Center to talk about how men can be active bystanders against sexual misconduct on University Campuses.

Male Mentoring Week 

Male Mentoring Week is centered on the Male Mentoring Initiative guiding principles of Nurturing Diversity, Global Engagement, Civic Responsibility, Commitment, and Academic Success.  MMI week serves as an opportunity to touch on specific topics such as men’s mental/physical health, social issues, and professional development.

Various Workshops 

MMI offers a series of workshops that focuses on the core topics each male students needs during their time at FIU. These workshops vary from MIB (Men In Black), MMI Round-up, male masculinity, men’s mental/physical health and ways to reduce sexual violence. MMI also offers a training seminar for all our male mentors at the start of the school year. For more information contact or visit the office of Multicultural Programs & Services located at MMC GC 216 and BBC WUC 253.
