The Pressures of Manhood: Organizational Masculine Cultures & the Problematic Behaviors & Attitudes of Fraternity Men | 1:00 PM EST
While fraternities often espouse goals related to the development of better men, fraternity membership is often associated with alcohol use, hazing, and other concerning behaviors and beliefs. The masculine cultures perpetuated by these organizations may explain the troubling outcomes of this population. Using research findings from a national study of nearly 3,000 undergraduate men from 76 chapters of a social fraternity, this webinar will identify connections among the masculine cultures of fraternity chapters, and the alcohol consumption behaviors and hazing attitudes of members. In addition, the presenter will propose intervention strategies related to masculinity that may mitigate hazing and alcohol use issues in college fraternities.
This program, in partnership with the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors, is presented by Adam M. McCready, Ph.D., visiting assistant professor of higher education and student affairs in the Neag School of Education at the University of Connecticut.
