Programs & Events
Are you interested in learning leadership skills and engaging in challenging discussions to become a better leader in your fraternal organization? Then participate in the Fraternity and Sorority Leadership UNCW Certificate program! These interactive workshops will focus on the current trends that fraternities and sororities are facing and challenge members to think critically about the actions of the organizations and the values we espouse.
To complete the FSL Certificate participants must complete 6 required workshops, one additional workshop of your choice, and one written reflection about the experience.
Fall 2013 dates, times and locations are coming soon!
Each spring our fraternity and sorority come together for a week long celebration on being Greek! Fraternities and sororities are grouped into 8 - 9 Greek Week teams and participate in a week of healthy competition. All 4 pillars of greek life are highlighted during the week with members participating in philanthropic programs, speaker programs, UNCW athletics events, greek games, and talent show.
Each semester the Interfraternity Council, Panhellenic Council, and Student Government Association work together to host a nationally recognized college speaker to present to our community. This is a highly attended event by our community with usually 65% - 75% of members in attendance. Typical speaking topics include character development, hazing prevention, personal growth, relationship building, leadership, motivation, and alcohol education.
The Greek Leadership Retreat, held every January, is an initiative to provide chapter presidents and council officers with the necessary skills to successfully lead their organizations throughout the next year. The timing of this program coincides with the time that the majority of our chapters and councils change officers. This period of high transition provides Fraternity and Sorority Life a unique opportunity to have intentional training before officers become too immersed in their leadership roles.
Topics typically covered during the retreat are:
- Leadership Training
- Risk Management and Hazing
- Crisis Management
- Goal Setting (Chapter and Community Level)
- Recruitment discussions
- Community Standards
- Community Building
- Fraternity and Sorority Life procedures
- Parliamentary procedure
Each semester new members attend the New Member Summit, a half-day greek conference composed of 4 workshop opportunities. All new members receive training on 2 required topics (Hazing Prevention and Alcohol/Drug Use and Abuse) and choose other sessions to attend.
At the end of each spring the Fraternity and Sorority Community comes together to celebrate and recognize the accomplishments of our members and chapters.
