Men of Distinction
Men of Distinction (MOD) is a programmatic effort created to support the sense of belonging, community, and retention of the Black Men of our campus. During its inaugural year, the men that participated in MOD worked closely with Alumni that are active in our MINA (Monmouth Intercultural Network of Alumni) group. The Alumni Mentors met regularly via both virtual and in person platforms, supporting students with lessons in personal, professional, educational, spiritual, mental wellness. The young men then utilized these skills during peer to peer and greater Monmouth civic engagement opportunities. The MOD group also worked in collaboration with the Women’s Empowerment Group by creating and implementing larger campus community building occasions to promote equity and inclusion efforts.
