Sage Gerard signs on as Director of Collegiate Activism

Sage Gerard has signed on as the Director of Collegiate Activism for A Voice for Male Students [1]. What does this mean? Put simply, if a student asks me for resources or counselling to support the creation of a men’s issues group on their campus, I will direct him or her to this man. And there isn’t a better man in the world for the job.

Sage Gerard is a masters student at Kennesaw State University and the founder of Zen Men (formerly KSU Men). Through his efforts – which include community outreach, on-the-ground awareness-raising, team-building, public speaking, conference organizing, and much more – he has made a significant impact on the conversation surrounding gender equity in higher education.

In 2014 he spearheaded and organized the first-ever Men’s Human Rights Conference on a university campus. The topic of the event? Nothing less than educational equity for men and boys.

In founding KSU Men and organizing the conference, he has weathered the storm of an insidiously intolerant, deceitful, and malicious faculty at his own university, a story that is so twisted and relentless that it is no stretch to say that it is a saga that has to be told in five parts (Part I Part II Part III Part IV Part V).

Since then, his firsthand experience has proven invaluable in helping other budding men’s issues groups find their feet on college campuses. I’m thankful to know Sage Gerard, and I’m confident that students who seek him out will be in good hands and given sage advice.
