Jackson Katz guest lecture- "More Than a Few Good Men"

Thursday, April 24, 2014 - 7:30 pm

Jackson Katz is an educator, anti-sexist male activist, social theorist, author and filmmaker. He holds a Master’s degree from Harvard Graduate School of Education, with a focus in the social construction of violent masculinities through sports and media. He holds a Ph. D. in cultural studies and education from UCLA. Katz has dedicated his life to gender violence prevention.  He developed the gender violence prevention program, Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP), at the Northeastern University’s Center for the Study of Sport in Society in 1993. The MVP program serves to empower both males and females from all socioeconomic, racial, ethnic, and sexual orientation backgrounds to become leaders and teaches the skills needed to build positive environments in schools, businesses and communities.

The evening lecture will give an opportunity for many students and faculty who have trained and/or educated in the MVP model to hear Katz lecture live on the development and impact of the model. Three student organizations have applied for funding to support the visit: Masters in Social Work Student Association: UNI Supporters of the United States Army, Sigma Phi Epsilon, a men’s fraternity that has been very engaged with CVP initiatives.
