Loyola University Maryland

ALANA Services


A few years ago, a group of faculty and administrators came together to check on the state of Black men and found that their experiences were markedly different from most Loyola students, and even different from their Black women counterparts. Therefore, we formed what is known as MAN2MAN. Since that time, we have expanded the program to include other men of color. As a result, we have seen tremendous enhancement in the lives of ALANA men at Loyola. 

MAN2MAN meets on select Mondays from 5-6:30 PM EST in the Center for Intercultural Engagement (CIE), which is located on the 3rd floor of the Andrew White Student Center. If you are a man of color at Loyola, consider attending a MAN2MAN meeting! Enjoy the opportunity to meet, mingle, and network with your fellow men of color, and with men of color who serve as Faculty, Staff, and Administrators at the University.
