“Andrew ran a small group workshop and discussion with staff who have been working on a year-long project looking at boys education and how we educate boys to become men of character. As we struggled with ideas and issues around masculinity, Andrew’s experience, research and intellect helped us focus upon the core values of our school, what they should look like in the lives of young men and ways to develop these core values both in and out of the classroom.”
-Stuart Ryan, Director of Pastoral Care, the Shore School, Sydney, Australia

“One of our key achievements in a very busy and momentous Sesquicentenary year was Andrew’s visit.  As well as being the inaugural Max Lawton Visiting Fellow, his time with us stimulated a great deal of very healthy discussion and at times debate. His “Observations and Suggestions” paper is guiding us in a number of areas, specifically in mapping our way forward in promoting positive masculine identity.”
-Bradley Fenner, Headmaster, Prince Alfred College, Adelaide, Australia

“I was particularly struck by the number of parents and teachers who independently reached out to me following Andrew’s talk, eager to continue the conversation he began. Parents, especially, found his work compelling, provocative, and important, and our remarkable turnout to his evening parent talk (the largest group we’ve ever seen at an optional parent talk like this) is a testament to the importance of this conversation–Andrew’s work strikes a chord…”

“Now more than ever, issues of masculinity and masculine culture rise to the surface as we continue to refine our work as educators of thoughtful, engaged, and insightful young adults, and Andrew’s work helped us immeasurably as we move forward in that journey.”
—N.R., Upper School Teacher and Diversity Committee member, McDonogh School

“Andrew’s presentation generated great conversation among staff, the teachers and the kids. It got a critical conversation going that we’ve been wanting to have for a long time.”
