Abstract

Problematic behavioral issues involving men have been well documented in the published discourse on college men and masculinities. Yet, empirical explanations as to why these issues persist and what educators can do to address them are largely absent from this discourse. Shared findings that emerged from two grounded theory studies of college men’s gender identity development are presented in this article. Based on these findings, recommendations for supporting college men’s gender identity development are offered.
