House Director's Manual
Second Edition Now Available: Click Here to Order
A house director is one of the most important and influential positions on the college campus. Few other people in the college community have so many opportunities to influence the lives of young people in various direct ways. The attitudes, habits, values, and standards the house director encourages have an impact that often lasts long after graduation.
The House Director's Manual was designed with house directors in mind. In developing the content for this updated manual, the Association of Fraternal Leadership & Values compiled the most current and relevant tools, tips, checklists, forms, and other materials essential for the women and men serving in these important roles. This updated manual contains new information on today's college student, trends in Fraternity and Sorority life, and much more! Utilizing the resources and information contained in this guide in conjunction with attending formal professional development conferences while creating informal networks of support will assist house directors in becoming the most effective resources for the students with whom they reside.
The second edition of the House Director's Manual was released in June 2012 with a new, additional chapter on Personnel Management.
The House Director's Manual is available to participants at the annual House Director Conference. The 2013 Fraternal Housing Conference will take place in Boston, MA.
