The Cassandra Voss Center at St. Norbert College, in collaboration with Humana, will welcome Don McPherson to campus and the Greater Green Bay area from March 8-10 for a series of programs related to his new book, “You Throw Like a Girl: The Blindspot of Masculinity.” The full schedule of events can be found at

McPherson is an activist, educator, NFL veteran and College Football Hall of Famer. Widely known as a former Syracuse University quarterback, McPherson has won more than 18 national player-of-the-year awards, including the Maxwell Award, the Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award and the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award. Since retiring from professional football, McPherson has become an internationally recognized anti-violence educator and author. His work is focused on “aspirational masculinity” and helping communities recognize positive and nurturing ways of being a man.

The Cassandra Voss Center was built in 2013 to honor the life of Cassandra J. Voss, who died in a car accident in 2007 at the age of 21, during her senior year at St. Norbert College. Voss was on track to be the first St. Norbert student to complete an individualized major in women’s and gender studies.

The center provides a collaborative learning environment for the study of women and gender using an integrated educational approach connecting theory, research, experiential learning and co-curricular development.
