Men of Distinction


Stronger Together: A Sense of Purpose 


The TCC Men of Distinction (MOD) initiative is a co-curricular experience that fosters leadership, nurtures professional and personal development, and is a support network for its members. In scholarly pursuit, members and mentors learn from one another by promoting and stimulating self-efficacy, academic excellence, career aspirations, and a sense of community.

Program Benefits

Men of Distinction helps young men entering college in the following ways.


The benefits of brotherhood are boundless; beyond the support system that will carry each of our MOD participants through their collegiate co-curricular experience. There will be opportunities for professional advancement, skillset improvement and leadership enhancement in a non-threatening forgiving environment where learning and growth are possible.
