Brother to Brother Interest Meeting @ McNamara Room (Ground Floor)
Feb 21 @ 10:00 pm – 11:30 pm

Brother to Brother is an undergraduate social and culturally based personal and professional development group for male identifying students, faculty, and staff of color at Alfred University.
Brother to Brother welcomes all male-identifying Afro-diasporic, Latino, Asian, and Native American males associated with Alfred University regardless of economic background, religious affiliation, or sexual orientation.
Brother to Brother subscribes to an emphasis on the principles of leadership, scholarship, and self-support. The group and facilitators seek to provide a space where students, staff, and faulty of color can speak openly and freely about some of the issues that men of color face at Alfred University and in American society.
We also seek to provide a space where men of color can feel free to be themselves, enjoy each other’s company and build friendships. Men involved in the group demonstrate a style of membership that aids the maturation  process and prepares them to  assume responsibility as educated global citizens.
