It's all Greek to me!
April 29, 2015 from 10am-Noon in Maucker Union, University Room
Presented by Steffoni Schmidt, Program Coordinator - Community Service & Greek Life
Greek organizations can be an integral part of a campus community and provide a value-added opportunity to the college experience. Fraternities and sororities face long-standing stereotypes (think Animal House) and have received recent national media attention about sexual assault and hazing within their community. However, the 80-20 rule applies here: 20% of chapters nationally are creating 80% of the problems.
UNI is fortunate to have a healthy and engaging Greek community, and the students would like to educate Student Affairs staff about the chapters here on campus and what it means to be Greek. This mediated panel discussion will provide an overview of the landscape and unique features of Fraternity & Sorority Life on campus. There will be time set aside at the end for networking between students and staff, allowing relationships to be cultivated and bridges to be built.
With student engagement being an ever-increasing topic of discussion at UNI, Fraternity & Sorority Life plays a unique role in offering students a quality leadership experience; one that is beneficial to not just the chapters and individual students, but the university as a whole. You will learn more about this community at UNI, be better equipped to support these students, and learn how you can be an advocate for the Greek experience.
