Address Disturbing Trends & Make Informed Decisions to Overcome the Challenges Facing Your Community
The pandemic and post-pandemic challenges have left Greek professionals on campus and at headquarters feeling more exhausted than ever before and beginning to question their role in the greater higher education landscape. With an alarming resurgence in alcohol use/binge drinking, social dominance hazing, and an increase in numbers of “always joiners”, these disturbing trends are major considerations facing both Greek organizations and institutions – leaving many to question their value in their collegiate community.
Gather key stakeholders on your campus and join us as our two seasoned fraternity professionals – Delta Phi Epsilon’s Chief Operating Officer Jessi Sheridan and current President of the Association of Fraternity and Sorority Advisors Christopher Graham – outline solutions and opportunities to address these disturbing trends and challenges facing campus Greek life communities and inter/national organizations. They will share innovative approaches based on assessment and data that will help organizations and campus professionals make informed decisions on infrastructure, policy, initiatives, and finances.
Improve the future of your fraternal community and organizations by being prepared to let go of antiquated systems and processes that are no longer supporting their advancement, take a “back to basics” approach, and solidify your position as a viable part of the college experience.

- Create core strategies for all campus professionals, alumni, and students to use to recognize not only what needs to change but how to promote that critical change – improve the future of your fraternal community and organizations by being prepared to let go of antiquated systems and processes that no longer support advancement.
