USC Men Care is a peer-education and leadership-development program focused on preventing sexual violence and fostering healthy ideas of masculinity. Members undergo extensive training and then facilitate discussions with other men’s groups across campus.
Men Care's guiding philosophy: Only a small number of men ever commit sexual violence, but all men are affected by it — and can play a positive part in preventing it. Through Men Care, USC guys learn how they can play that positive part.
Men Care offers three workshops that teach bystander intervention skills, conducts special events such as our Men's Voices Against Violence event during Take Back the Week, and distributes posters that complement our discussions.
During its lifetime, Men Care has conducted workshops in conjunction with every fraternity affiliated with the USC Interfraternity Council, NCAA male student-athletes and a variety of other groups. And through a partnership with the USC Rossier School of Education, Men Care has conducted pre- and post-workshop surveys whose data indicate that the workshops are making a positive difference at USC.
