WU students participate in national conversation series

Contact: Andrea Doyle Hugmeyer

Students will speak about their experience as male athletes engaged in violence prevention.

The national organization Men Can Stop Rape has featured Willamette University staff and students in a national conversation series about healthy masculinity and doing violence prevention work in athletics.

This is a two-part series. The first part of the conversation occurred on Tuesday, March 16, and included Director of the Gender Resource & Advocacy Center Andrea Doyle Hugmeyer and men's basketball coach Kip Ioane. The livestream was recorded and can be viewed by clicking the link below. Part two of the conversation series will feature Willamette students Ryan Peterson '21 and Will Huntington '21, both athletes on the men's basketball team.

The conversation series aims to address the following questions:

What does healthy masculinity look like in college athletics? What does it look like in gender-based violence prevention programming? What do male student athletes take away from the programming?

Part two airs on Tuesday, March 23 at 1 p.m. PST. RSVP to receive the livestream link: https://mcsr.org/conversation-10
