The National Black Male Retreat promotes self-awareness, unity, academic motivation, leadership, and manhood among a concentrated group of Black males. Students will be able to come together during the retreat and discuss relevant topics specific to their experiences in higher education.

Initially, the Retreat served as a platform from which students could discuss their perceived place on The Ohio State University’s campus. Currently, the Retreat has become a place of refuge for all undergraduate student participants who attend. Open to students across the nation, attendees are exposed to nationally-renowned speakers, presented with insightfully themed workshops with applicable and practical information, and able to enjoy an exciting opportunity to network and reflect on who they are and the unlimited potential they possess.

Thank You to our Ohio State University Sponsors!
