Renaissance MAN

Renaissance MAN


Renaissance Male Achievement Network (Renaissance MAN) is an initiative through Student Transitions and Family Programs that will provide academic enrichment, social engagement, personal development and professional preparation. Our target population for this initiative is college men of color at Clemson University: however, any Clemson gentleman is encouraged to participate. You will be encouraged and supported in excelling academically and becoming involved in high impact practices such as honors, internships, service studying abroad and undergraduate research.

 

The Renaissance MAN experience is designed to support students from freshmen year to senior year. In terms of the benefits we will provide both peer and professional mentoring opportunities, individualized meetings with staff, academic course support, and social enrichment. We also provide various incentives throughout the experience as our way to recognize the commitment of our participants.  Each year of our program offers a different set of expectations that contribute to the growth and development of Clemson men from Gentlemen to Renaissance Achievers.
