This year, the Office of Sorority and Fraternity Life staff brought 30 student leaders to Indianapolis, Indiana for the Annual Central Fraternal Leadership Conference & the National Black Greek Leadership Conference from February 4th-8th.The weekend was a great opportunity for the leadership from all four councils to meet one another and gain skills and knowledge to bring back to their Fraternity and Sorority Life community here at UT. The 30 student leaders spent four days attending educational programs presented by university administrators and other professionals from across the country. Topics included general leadership, strategic planning, marketing, social justice, risk management, values and ethics, service learning, ethical leadership, and more.
While at the conference, the Panhellenic Council was able to accept an award for their excellency in the category of “Membership Recruitment’ for the 2016 calendar in Panhellenic Division III. Panhellenic Vice President of Internal Affairs, Eduarda Lague, and OSFL Graduate Assistant, Mary Kate Misak, competed in the Order of Omega Case Study Competition and placed first in their division.
Students and staff came back to Knoxville with newly built relationships with one another and with Sorority and Fraternity Life constituents from around the country and fresh ideas to implement positive change at UTK!
