Black and Latino Male Empowerment Group

The Black and Latino Male Empowerment Group is a facilitated open discussion environment in which the shared experiences of Black and Latino men on a majority campus are explored. The goal of this drop-in group is to identify ways in which students can fully embrace the Penn State experience through academic success, community service initiatives, and relationship building, while taking advantage of all academic and social opportunities within the University.

The Black and Latino Male Empowerment Group meets virtually on the following Thursdays during fall 2022, 5:00-6:30 p.m. 

Fall 2022 Dates are TBD

"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
