"Educating Men" at Aspen Ideas Festival

August 28, 2012

Aspen logoOn Sunday, July 1, President Christopher Howard moderated a panel at the Aspen Ideas Festival on "Raising Boys, Engaging Guys, and Educating Men"


"What Works? Do we have a "boy problem"? Academically, socially, emotionally, and economically, boys and young men seem to be losing ground. Just ask the increasing number of parents who are finding their young-adult sons back at home with few prospects and fewer coping skills. But is this assessment fair - or accurate? What's causing the problem and how can we turn it around? Who is getting it right? Separate fact from fiction and gain insight into how best to nurture boys into thoughtful, capable, and responsible men (here's a hint: Men play a key role!)."

The audio and transcript of the panel discussion with Michael Kimmell and Michael Thompson are now available.
