Mission and purpose

The Men of Color Summit 2024 will educate, empower and motivate our students to strive for excellence in education. Throughout the day, students, faculty, staff and community members will engage in discussions encompassing the needs and issues that specifically men of color face, and how those issues intersect with their academic and professional careers.

The Summit invites all students to participate, however, it is intentionally designed to help men of color gain a stronger sense of self as well as to connect with peers, faculty, staff, and with the larger Binghamton University and surrounding communities. The Summit’s goals are to provide opportunities for participants to learn from and engage with professional leaders in the community; to provide networking opportunities for participants to learn from each other by participating in workshops and small group discussions; and to help participants gain a greater sense of self. Attending the educational sessions offered will help them to contextualize their identity socially, academically, historically and politically.

The Men of Color Summit is presented by various Binghamton University divisions and departments, the Iota Theta Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and SUNY Broome Community College.
