Men Can Stop Rape (MCSR) Info Session

Brandon Tilghman is associate director of foundation relations in UMBC’s Office of Institutional Advancement.

Brandon TilghmanLast week, Jeff Cullen shared his story of getting involved in sexual assault prevention through the non-profit group Men Can Stop Rape (MCSR). I’m writing now to ask for your help in moving forward this cause.

MCSR is developing a presence in Baltimore, organizing sessions for young men to discuss attitudes about bullying and sexual harassment, healthy relationships and masculinity. We are recruiting 4-6 UMBC students to serve as facilitators for these Men Of Strength (MOST) Clubs. If you identify as male and sense that sexual assault and relationship violence are issues where you would like to make a difference, please join me at a pizza lunch and info session on Tuesday, December 11, noon-1:00 p.m. in PUP 107.

The commitment to serve as a facilitator would be 2-3 days of training in January, followed by 2-3 hours per week for the duration of the spring semester after-school program. Most facilitators will have the opportunity to enroll in the 096 Community Service & Learning practicum through the Shriver Center, a zero-credit transcript notation recognizing service-learning experience.

Should you have any questions about the event or seek other opportunities to become more involved, please contact me or my colleague, Lori Hardesty (
