Pre-Conference Opportunities: July 27th

Noon-5:00pm: Social Event REAL Talk

Dr. Lori Hart, an alcohol and safety expert in the fraternal world, will train stakeholders to have real and meaningful harm reduction conversations with fraternity & sorority members. Primarily, Dr. Hart will focus on strategies for safer social events with alcohol, and campus conversations.

5:30-7:30pm: Mixer with Campus Leadership 

We know that advisors want to get to know each other and campus leaders in a more informal environment, so we are hosting a mixer! Light refreshments and a cash bar will be provided.

Dr. Lori Hart will also be kicking off the mixer and our conference with a powerful message about the purpose of fraternal groups, the national landscape, and the important roles that we all play in the lives of these students.
