Who should attend?

The program speaks specifically to graduate or alumni volunteer advisors of fraternity and sorority chapters. It is relevant to those who advise a single functional area (e.g. recruitment, finances, member development, etc.), to general chapter advisors, and to regional advisors who work directly with students. Advisors who are not members of a fraternity/sorority are encouraged to attend, as non-members have found the program especially worthwhile. The program may not be relevant to fraternity/sorority professionals on campus or headquarters or to those who do not work directly with students.

What you will learn?

  • What life looks like through the eyes of today’s college student
  • How to lead conversations with students about difficult topics
  • Multiple options for handling problematic situations
  • How to work with campus, headquarters, and umbrella association partners
  • Techniques for setting expectations and maintaining accountability

What do past participants think of the experience?

“Very helpful for an advisor at any stage of their professional development. Great interaction with the audience, relevant material, and interesting concepts that can be applied to nearly any advising situation.”

“I've actually already talked to our advisors about this program. I told them about my "ah ha" moment.”

“It was worth the time to be in a room with about 60 other advisers and listen to the common problems.”

“I would say that it is a very helpful session to learn more about how and why members may be doing certain things. It would definitely be beneficial to advisors who may be older and haven't been around the college atmosphere in years.”


This program, developed by RISE Partnerships, is made possible by a generous grant from Phi Mu Delta Fraternity.
