Leadership development is one of the core values and benefits of being a member of
a fraternity or sorority. As a community, we offer multiple opportunities for our
members to grow as leaders. These activities and events are coordinated by the Director
of Leadership Development on the Fraternity & Sorority Programming Board, a shared
organization between the governing councils within our community, as well as through
the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life. Additionally, we actively promote participation
by our members in the various leadership development opportunities available on campus.
Regardless of if a student has a title or not, we want all our chapter members to
act as leaders and to have the skills needed to do so.
