Men’s Resource Center Hours
Monday–Thursday: 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.
Friday: 10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.
Located on the top floor of the Erb Memorial Union, Room 211, the MRC provides students a respite from the day-to-day hustle of life on campus. Whether it's to play games, or just to rest and relax, all are welcome.
Living the Questions
Who am I? How do I live my best life? What does it mean to be a good man? How can I help the men in my community to grow and thrive? Rather than providing you with answers, the Men's Resource Center (MRC) invites you to explore your own unique relationship to the intersection of identity, well-being, and various forms of masculinity. We believe that no one knows you better than yourself, and are committed to creating spaces in which you can be curious and courageous.
Movember for Men's Health
Each November, the MRC teams up with groups from all across campus to learn and share about issues related to men's health and well-being. Events include panel discussions, fitness competitions, gaming parties, and more.
The Community Advocacy Program is a student-led initiative focused on building stronger community through connection. Students of all identities and experiences participate through outreach, mentorship, and various types of social events.
Meet with Counseling Services Eric Garcia, who specializes in working with LatinX and undocumented students, for Let’s Talk on Thursdays 2-4PM.
Let’s Talk is a service that provides easy access to free, informal, and confidential one-on-one consultation with a Counseling Services staff member. See our website for six additional Let’s Talk days/times offered throughout the week.
Let’s Talk is especially helpful for students who:
Have a specific concern and would like to consult with someone about it.
Would like on-the-spot consultation rather than ongoing counseling.
Would like to consult with a CS staff member about what actual therapy looks like.
Would like to meet with one of our CS identity-based specialists.
Have a concern about a friend or family member and would like some ideas about what to do.
How does Let’s (Tele)Talk work?
While typically offered in various campus locations, Let’s (Tele)Talk will be offered via Zoom. As a drop-in service, there is no need to schedule an appointment and no paperwork to be completed. Students are seen individually on a first-come, first-served basis at the times listed below. There may be a wait in the Zoom waiting room if the Let’s (Tele)Talk staff member is meeting with another student. Please wait and we will be with you as soon as we can. Let’s Talk appointments are brief (usually between 15-30 minutes) and are meant to be used on an as-needed basis.

When you’re a busy student with children, finding time for self-care can feel impossible. It can also seem hard to justify taking time to yourself when you are responsible for the care of others – there is always something else to do! This can lead to feelings of guilt, resentment, and even burnout.
In this virtual workshop, students with children will be encouraged to reimagine their relationship with self-care – realistically and compassionately. What is self-care, anyway? Why is it important, and how do I know if I need to change my self-care strategy? Can taking care of myself really lead to a better experience for the kids I care for?
If you are a student who cares for children, please RSVP for this event, and we'll send you the zoom link. The first 30 students who RSVP will receive a complimentary self-care box after the workshop.
