America is worried about young men. 

Colleges are particularly concerned and use words such as problemlost and crisis to describe their challenges.  They are troubled by men’s bad behavior, their rates of success and the shortfall of positive male role models on campus.

This program addresses the relationships men face with society, women, family, other men and, most-importantly, themselves.  Through the investigation of many of the assumptions about college men, and how these assumptions are developed and acted out each day, Casey challenges men to create a new standard. Being “man enough” is about having the strength and capacity to be authentic, reliable, humble and kind but also being able to help other men live up to these greater expectations.

Man Enough is the beginning of a discussion.  Casey J. Cornelius, a leading voice for student success, has committed himself to the cause of creating a dialogue on campus and beyond around the need for a new form of masculinity and college men.

Learning Outcomes:  At the conclusion of this program, audience members will investigate current issues facing college men; identify how their relationships with others and themselves are impacted by the stigma of the “bad man”; Consider how their daily choices influence other’s perceptions; Develop strategies to positively challenge other men to be better.
