Black Male and Latino Male Empowerment Group


Beginning in the fall 2016, the Multicultural Resource Center (MRC) will resume biweekly meetings of the Black Male and Latino Male Empowerment Groups. This is a facilitated open discussion environment for African American and Latino men to meet biweekly within a safe space. The Black Male and Latino Male Empowerment Groups explore shared experiences as Black and Latino men on a majority campus. The goal is to assist men of color with identifying ways to fully embrace the Penn State experience through academic success, the development of community service initiatives, and relationship building, while taking advantage of all academic and social opportunities within the University.

Black Male Empowerment Group (BMEG)

BMEG explores shared experiences as Black men on a majority White campus. Its goal is to assist men of color with identifying ways to fully embrace the Penn State experience through academic success, the development of community service initiatives, and relationship building, while taking advantage of all academic and social opportunities within the University.

"BMEG fosters a unique environment. It is an enriching organization that provides support for the Black male population at Penn State that cannot be replicated in any other environment. BMEG offers an environment free from nonconstructive criticism and judgment." – B. Jackson



Latino Male Empowerment Group (LMEG)

LMEG offers learning communities, biweekly meetings, lecture series, professional development opportunities, and a social and professional support network for students studying at Penn State. Its mission is to increase participation of Latino/Hispanic males in activities and professional development, increase retention and graduation rates, and establish a social and professional network for Latino/Hispanic males.
