'Generational Ties' Program Created for Minority Men Being Held Tonight

The University of Arkansas Multicultural Center, Charles & Cappy Whiteside Greek Life Leadership Center, and the National Pan-Hellenic Council have designed an educational program that is titled "Generational Ties." The program will be at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 4, in Arkansas Union 504. This program is designed to motivate, empower, and support academic success for minority men here at the University of Arkansas. Through this program, men will be able to learn the importance of networking, mentoring, and navigating their way throughout college and after.

The Multicultural Center, Charles & Cappy Whiteside Greek Life Leadership Center, and the National Pan-Hellenic Council would like to invite other males who are U of A faculty and staff members to this program to help mentor, guide, and prepare young men for the next level. The goal of this program is to help young men build a foundation of character development that would produce quality men not only for their campus and community but also throughout the world.

They would like the men to bring one necktie or bowtie with them to this event. They will also have ties for those who may not have one. During this program, they plan to teach young men how to tie a necktie and bowtie. Also, thye plan to discuss how each generation is tied together as a support to one another. Come and enjoy great conversations and food. You do not want to miss this event.
