Dyad Strategies to Assess Impact of AFLV Conferences

 

FORT COLLINS, COLO. – The Association of Fraternal Leadership & Values (AFLV) and Dyad Strategies are embarking on a multiyear partnership in an effort to increase access to high quality research that can improve the fraternity & sorority experience.

 

Dyad Strategies will conduct all survey administration, data analysis and reporting for both AFLV Central and AFLV West through a customized member assessment. This will include the development of an AFLV-specific instrument designed to measure changes in participant attitudes and behaviors, related to the following experiential outcomes:

 

  • Increase students’ confidence in their own ability to take leadership-based action within their chapters, councils, and communities.
  • Increase students’ confidence in their own ability to make positive changes in their chapters, councils, and/ or communities.
  • Promote positive attitudes related to interfraternalism and collaborative interfraternal work.
  • Decrease students’ tolerance for unsafe and illegal behaviors within their chapters, councils, and/or communities (i.e. hazing, sexual violence, alcohol abuse, drug misuse/abuse).
  • Increase students’ willingness to hold themselves and their brothers/sisters accountable for behaviors that run counter to espoused fraternal values.
  • Increase students’ willingness to develop themselves and their brothers/sisters to exhibit behavior consistent with espoused fraternal values.
  • Increase students’ openness to diversity and a commitment to social justice within their fraternity/sorority communities.
  • Increase students’ confidence in their own ability to positively impact the world (locally, nationally, globally).

 

Through the partnership, Dyad Strategies will conduct all survey administration, data analysis and reporting for both AFLV Central and AFLV West. In turn, AFLV will promote Dyad Strategies student-focused research findings to member subscribers in an effort to increase access to this work.

 

“AFLV is really looking forward to working with Dyad Strategies on this project over the next several years,” said Ryan O’Rourke, AFLV Executive Director. “Our ability to better understand the impact our conference experience has on the fraternity/sorority students in attendance will allow us to insure we’re continuing to offer an experience resulting in changing attitudes about, and changing behaviors within, their local fraternity/ sorority experience. The potential impact of sharing our findings and other Dyad research findings with fraternity/sorority communities is in another incredibly important, exciting benefit to those engaged with the AFLV experience.”

 

Gentry McCreary, Dyad Strategies CEO & Managing Partner added “with our core value of helping organizations measure and improve the impact of their work, I can think of no better partner than AFLV. As an organization, they reach more students every year with their programming than any other organization in the fraternal industry. Working with AFLV to align their programmatic efforts with strategic experiential outcomes, measuring the impact of their efforts, and exposing students to the research we are already doing is an incredible opportunity for our company. We are thrilled about this partnership.”
