New Member Education Resources

Effective new member education provides a foundation of education about the fraternity & sorority organization’s purpose, values, and current realities and allows members to make meaning of their role in the organization. The selection of new members and the ways in which fraternities and sororities educate and prepare these new members for a lifetime of involvement in a fraternity and sorority is the lifeblood of Greek-Lettered organizations. Chapters should diligently examine when and how intake or recruitment is conducted as well as the practices by which interested members are prepared for membership.

For more information about any of the resources below, contact Armando Rijo, Assistant Director of Fraternity & Sorority Life at [email protected].
