Officially opening this fall, the center invites the community, faculty, staff and students to its Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Thursday, Aug. 22 at 8:30 a.m. The event will be held in the Student-Conference Center room 234.

“Our mission is to recruit, engage and equip male students with essential life and social skills necessary to begin and complete their degree, license or certification plan,” said Waymond Wesley, program director. “We invite the community and campus to the ceremony to learn more about the program.”

The Men’s Center’s programs, services and activities are designed on a social, educational and recreational basis. Services and programs include mentoring, academic coaching, guidance counseling, group meetings, and educational workshops. Recreational activities include movies, gaming tournaments, and fitness challenges.

“Our essential purpose is to increase male students’ enrollment and provide comprehensive support services that increase graduation and program completion rates for LSC-Kingwood students,” Wesley said.
