This conference is designed to bring college students from the southern California and surrounding areas together for one day to discuss men and masculinity. Dudes Understanding Diversity and Ending Stereotypes (DUDES) is a traveling Men’s Center, housed in the University of Redlands’ Campus Diversity and Inclusion Center. It serves students who identify as Men, as well as women, transgender students, and male allies. DUDES provides support for students who would like a safe space to talk about men’s issues, get involved more on campus, and discuss issues regarding masculinity, media, gender roles, current events, etc. As an organization, we discuss possible ways to reform current stereotypes around men and masculinity and how to adapt to the changing world around us. This conference is the next step towards accomplishing this mission and vision. All genders and ideologies are welcome to attend and submit proposals. The conference will feature several student-led sessions exploring issues they have researched, experienced, and/or are looking to discuss with other students. It will also provide time for students to network and talk about challenges, with which their campuses currently struggle and explore strategies and solutions.
