Throughout the year, we facilitate various workshops that make students aware of their multiple social identities and how they impact their lives inside and outside of the classroom. In these sessions, students receive hands-on, practical skills for challenging their biases, confronting inappropriate behavior, communicating with people from different backgrounds and working to increase unity and inclusion on campus. If you are interested in sponsoring or participating in one of our training workshops, contact Mary Larkin, Program Coordinator for the LGBT Resource Center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
THE BROTHERHOOD INITIATIVE
The BrotherHOOD (Helping Others Obtain Degrees) is a university-wide initiative designed to engage, empower, retain and graduate more males of color at Eastern Michigan University. Through collaborative partnerships with offices throughout the university, we employ a success-driven approach to help males of color develop as students and as men instead of addressing deficits and challenges they need to overcome.
Learning Outcomes: Through participation in the BrotherHOOD Initiative, students will be able to:
BrotherHOOD "Barber Shop" - Come get a free haircut, grab a bite to eat and enjoy meaningful dialogue with other male students, faculty, staff and alumni.

THE SISTERHOOD INITIATIVE
SisterHOOD provides a safe space for WOC to promote the following six building BLOCKS: Beauty, Leadership, Outreach, Creativity, Knowledge and Sisterhood (BLOCKS). Through monthly dialogues and programming we build a community that focuses on developing one’s identity as a WOC, celebrating our cultural influences that shape our lives and to share/receive encouragement and positive reinforcement from other students and professionals who look like us.
