Membership in a fraternity or sorority provides numerous opportunities for leadership development. As a chapter officer or coordinator of a chapter event, you can further develop your leadership skills. Each chapter has committee structures that allow you to be involved in many operational aspects of the sorority or fraternity. You will also be encouraged by your chapter to become involved in campus-wide activities. Fraternity and Sorority Life is a great springboard to campus involvement, including Student Senate, special-interest clubs and organizations, pre-professional organizations, Activities Council at Bradley University, intramural sports, and many others. Striking a balance between academics and social activities is an important part of college life. Involvement in both areas provides a well-rounded college experience, which is an appealing asset to potential employers.
Greek Programming Board (GPB) works hard to provide students with opportunities to continue their development as leaders and members of the Bradley Community. They host an annual speaker on a relevant topic, as well as support semester retreats for current leadership.
Association of Fraternal Leadership and Values
In collaboration with Bradley University, Fraternity and Sorority Life, Panhellenic Council, Interfraternity Council and National Pan-Hellenic Council, students are sent annually to the Association of Fraternal Leadership and Values Central Conference . Here students connect with other leaders across the nation, listen and engage in critical thinking and thought provoking speakers as well as continuing to gain insight on updated best practices as a student leader on campus.
Emerging Greek Leadership Retreat
Hosted annually, this retreat is for upcoming student leaders who wish to gain tools, resources and insight into navigating upcoming elections within chapters and councils. This staff and peer facilitated workshop allows students to build confidence to move forward in their leadership skills, learn effective ways to communicate their vision and work alongside other peers to continue moving the fraternity and sorority community.
