Male Empowerment Network Chapter to Launch at RSC

Rio Salado College will host an informational kick-off event Thursday, August 22 from 5 - 7 p.m. at the Conference Center at Rio.

The event celebrates the launch of Rio Salado’s chapter of the Maricopa County Community College District Male Empowerment Network

The Male Empowerment Network (MEN) is an extension of the District’s Minority Male Initiative. The network extends through all ten Maricopa District colleges, and encourages engagement, success, leadership and brotherhood among male students of diverse cultural backgrounds.

The Rio Salado MEN chapter hopes to connect members with academic, personal and professional support. The group will hold regular online and in-person events promoting a culture of success and empowerment.

The chapter is currently recruiting new members and invites interested students to stop by during the launch event for a campus tour and additional information. Refreshments will be provided.
