Matthew Zalman

My name is Matt Zalman and I am currently the Coordinator for Academic Initiatives and Residential Learning Community in the office of University Housing here at Appalachian State University.  I have been working in University Housing for the last eight years, most of those years at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln.  I enjoy working with students and imparting knowledge to them, but most importantly learning from them.  I appreciate diverse perspectives, even if it is completely against my perspective.  In terms of the study of Men and Masculinities, I have recently in the past three years come to see this as a way to study gender and learn about what is to be a man in today's society where most do not have heroes or positive role models to look toward.  I hope to continue this work throughout my tenure as a Student Affairs professiona
