Marquette will host the second annual Leadership and Brotherhood Summit for Young Men of Color on Wednesday, Nov. 6.
The event is in collaboration with local Milwaukee high schools and aims to engage in a community-wide effort to support the leadership development, enhance the academic success and affirm the cultural identity development and dignity of young men of color in the greater Milwaukee region.
During the event, approximately 300 young men will explore Marquette’s campus community, attend leadership development sessions, and engage in interscholastic dialogue. Through various panels, workshops, lectures and guided tours, participants will learn how they can become change agents in the community — and country — through personal development, servant leadership and civic engagement.
